One warm day in June Doug found himself 
with a group of guys who would learn to value 
his friendship greatly. Doug, alias Rhino, is very 
easy going and mild mannered; that is, of 
course, if you don't crumble his cookies. Rhino, 
a normal systems engineering major, minors in 
TV. Doug has been able to log in over 30 hours 
of TV a week. A high point of Doug's stay at 
Navy was his interview with Admiral Rickover 
Successful, of course' On occasion when Doug 
IS serious, it is evident that he will be a conscien- 
tious and effective naval officer due to his high 
regard for the naval service. In June Doug will 
take on a lifetime roommate — Sherry Doug's 
future consists of roast beef sandwiches, 
Schlitz, and football games 


The "Bulldog " hails from New York City. Any- 
thing he hasn't seen hasn't been thed Although 
never a favorite of King Neptune's, "J T " did 
manage to become captain of the 7th period 
swim team. Some say that Terry has never been 
seen putting in a 30 hour work week, but this 
shouldn't detract from his intellectual finesse. 
The fact that the Hop Committee sought his 
organizational ability with the tea fights is hardly 
surprising, as his notonety m this area goes way 
back. Maybe it's because he calls his dates by 
their last name However, one should recall that 
he did survive Fort Benning. Yes, the Marines 
lost a good man to the surface warfare line Ter- 
ry's contribution to the Navy will be admirable as 
he believes m himself and his country He's a 
man who cares and won't let you down.

And with its head he went galumphing back.

Canoe U attracted Rick from sunny Whittier, 
Calif. He succeeded in establishing himself as 
one of USNA's top oceanographers, 75 ocean- 
gophers soon learned that 'Double Gnbble was 
the man to see for help (gouge). 'Gribs' Trident 
project, the electromagnetic effects upon bio- 
rhythms, drew international interest Athletically, 
Rick was frequently seen swatting at tennis 
balls Graduation will find him heading for Nuke 
School in his MG. The sub force will find him a 
welcome addition. 


"Little Timmy Hogan" left his female fan club 
in Dallas, Texas to establish a new branch in 
Annapolis. "Hogey" and the boys at "the 
house" will be remembered for their stellar par- 
ties He was a member of the notorious USNA 
traveling beer-baseball troupe. History will 
remember him as the man voted "Marine of the 
Month" 13 times in one year. His characteristic 
condition of "eyes at halfmast" accompanied in 
to the "Ana-Mana" ma|or The fleet, California, 
(and Its girls) should look forward to having him 
after graduation. 


When Hector first arrived at USNA, no one 
could figure out whether he was speaking Eng- 
lish or Spanish However, though his English 
improved quickly, it became obvious that his 
mam goal was to make Spanish the official lan- 
guage of USNA and to convert the school to the 
Chilean way of life. Hector will be remembered 
most for his friendliness, wit, and willingness to 
help out at all times. It will be sad to see him 
leave our country after graduation, yet we are 
certain that we shall meet again.

Stanley came to us from Gary, South Caro- 
lina. He headed north 4 years ago with Moe and 
a Curlee, Larry went to State. Consideration is 
one of his finer qualities, as he never ate his roo- 
mie's pies or oranges, Gary is a perfect Mid, tak- 
ing Brasso on dates to polish his missiles. After 2 
years on the Varsity cross country team, he 
turned into an athletic supporter Initially Ricked- 
over, Gary opted for Navy air. His background of 
taking up space at USNA has provided the avia- 
tion community a fine specimen. 


"Mars" came to NAVY U from a friendly hou- 
sehold of 10 in Warwick, R.I. Plebe year was no 
sweat for Mike, managing 4.0 while wrestling 
and being a member of the Hop Committee 
That year was culminated by placing his cap on 
Herndon and winning the Supt's boards. After 
hours, one could find Mike in the wrestling loft or 
at the Stevenson's. Coming away from 1 /C 
Nuke staff training, the "Troll" continued his 
athletics with 1 50's and wrestling He was one of 
75's first Bio majors to go to Med school. Mike 
will make a welcome addition to the fleet. 


"You gotta hang loose I hold all the aces." 
These 2 sayings best describe Navy's All-Ameri- 
can lacrosse defenseman from Floral Park, New 
York. Jake was an avid believer in the rack, 
gouge, white works, and enjoying himself. As 
"Lax Lawlor," he always got by with plenty to 
spare in his chosen field of "nuclear" manage- 
ment His assets were many. Who else could 
take long weekends as a youngster, not know 
where "historic Worden Field" is, and get 3 
weeks in Hawaii for 1 , c cruise (the rest was 
leave)'' He leaves behind a reputation that will 
never be equalled. Success, along with his 
guardian angel, will be with John always. 


Mike was on his way to the good life at some 
unknown college in University Park, Penn. when 
a personal letter arrived from St. John's in 
Annapolis begging for his attendance. Forsaking 
Mom, apple pie, the girl next door, and weakfish, 
he journeyed down one June day, got mixed up 
in tils directions, and ended up being inducted 
with the rest of 8th platoon. After choosing 
nuclear management, he and Jake undertook 
the first ever Trident agricultural project, special- 
izing in pies and exotic fruits. A lover at heart, 
aviator by choice, and black shoe by quota, 
Mike leaves Scott Haney Day, Jim Thorpe week- 
ends and circular washbasins to do a fine job. 


Mike came to UNAV from the sun and fun 
capital of the East, Virginia Beach. Always a 
hard charger with the books, Mike didn't allow 
his once busy social schedule to fall behind due 
to collateral duties including parking coordinator 
at the city garage, and Saturday night bartender 
at the Old Town Tavern. Not always the luckiest 
with blind dates, he can always be seen with his 
travelling companion Bacardi, a surfboard, and 
an assortment of "Hang-.Ten" shirts. Mike is 
looking forward to a pale tan and a long career 
under the deep blue searching for that eternal 
wave. And as usual Mike, you should have been 
here yesterday!

Mike turned in his fishing pole for a rifle and 
eventually adjusted to the life of a squid After a 
seemingly endless battle with academics, he 
finally got on top of things 2/c year. About the 
only lesson he learned plebe year was that of 
rating what you got away with — heavily exer- 
cising this the next 3 years Joining the ranks of 
the few good men in June will soon be followed 
by an altar date with his high school sweetheart. 

— To f^arli. Mom and Dad, family, and friends 

— Thanks. 


A quiet and hard working individual. Jim came 
to USNA from a small boarding school in Hag- 
erstown, Md Therefore, he was very much 
attuned to life at an academy, Jim. being a 3rd 
generation Academy man, was eager to do well. 
No one excelled his ability to party, drink, and 
entertain people. The silent man from Arlington, 
Va. has a knack for charming girls with his gen- 
teel taste for life The high seas call Jim, his des- 
tination IS Athens. Greece on a DDG So stand 
by Grecian girls, for the charming man is on his 
way We wish Jim the best of luck but does 
he need \P 


This slow talking Texan hails from the sprawl- 
ing metropolis of Irving Better known as 
"Murph" to his buddies from 1st Company, he is 
always ready to head on out for a beer or two 
regardless of the occasion or the amount of 
homework left undone The discus or "plate" 
occupied most of his free time, but he still man- 
aged to slip by the academic side of the Univer- 
sity of Navy Always ready to stop at McDonald's 
for a quarter-pounder, he met his favorite "Ham- 
burger Patti" in Philly 2/c year.

Pony trotted in from the big corral of Eckard 
Mines to Navy. Always the lead stallion of the 
herd, Pony became an astute academician and 
a high striper. A real party goer, Ron could 
always be found conversing with Mr. Bacardi or 
dancing with the young lovelies After his many 
thrilling stories and escapades. Pony is going 
out to pasture in June with his cute filly Ruth 
The Horse decided on nuclear power as his 
service choice and the Navy is getting a good 
man. Ron is a good friend who will be remem- 
bered for all he did for his buddies and he is one 
guy we all hate to see leave. 

When Bob decided to come to USNA over 
tennis scholarships at many other colleges and 
a tennis career, little did he know what was in 
store for him. From the slow talking, polite 
Southerner from Charleston, S.C . the Academy 
produced a devious, conniving glut when it 
came to women and drinking Somehow 
between dates and tennis, he found time to get 
the grades. Then there was that fateful night 
when Bob put his hand through a window. His 
aspirations in becoming a dentist plummeted as 
did his morale and outlook, but he came back. 
Though NPQ, he went on to become the tennis 
captain and was chosen for the CEC. It doesn't 
look like anything can stop him but we wish him 
luck anyway. 

Rob "Rocket" Reed came to the U of N from 
Quantico- He left home in search of a "dream" 
education and Marine air career. 50% isn't bad 
for he certainly received his education, in more 
ways than one He teamed his athletic ability and 
M.E talent to earn the stroke position on the. 
crew team along with the reputation of a "quick 
slide"; thus the nickname, "Rocket" Deciding 
against the "Junior College" exit, he became a 
believer in "maxing out" when possible He was 
always hitting the books when he should have 
opened them But alas' he had to budget his 
time between sleeping, rowing, eating, sleeping, 
rowing, cutiing hair, sleeping, writing, sleeping 
All between his night classes at Mary Washing- 
ton College. Not only will Rob earn his B.S. in 
ME , but also his Ph D in M D In July, he will be 
Z-ing It to P'cola for continued success "both 
on and off the field."

Dennis had never been East of the Mississippi, 
yet, on that fateful day in 1971, he reported to 
the boating capital of the world for what he 
thought would be a 4 year vacation. Leaving 
Paula and his family behind in return for a mar- 
velous education and a chance to become one 
of 'America's Finest" had to be the biggest 
decision of his young life A hard worker, if he 
wasn't wearing out' the bindings on his books, 
he could be found wearing out his hands on an 
oar on the Severn 1 c year brought happiness 
as his soon-to-be bride moved cross country to 
become a secretary during the week and a 
noticeable asset at his side on the weekends. 
His last big decision came in November as he 
signed up for Navy air, the beginning of the rest 
of his life. 


Rick operated out of Coplay. Pa, and often 
times could be seen scurrying home to his favor- 
ite establishment. The Ale House. With no big 
desire to excel in such military things as march- 
ing, he spent much of his time trying to slide past 
Navy, Rick was a BAC man, a merry crew mem- 
ber of the Belle Isle, and could be seen sunning 
on a yawl as a scenic backdrop to June Week P- 
rades, A connoisseur of fine style, he spent 
much of his time styling his hair to conform to 
"Navy the Uncollege " rules Rick will join Rick- 
over's Navy, which should be an interesting bat-

Bob came to the Naval Academy after spend- 
ing a year at Bullis Prep. Hailing from Annan- 
dale, Va,, fie knew of USNA and still came to 
serve a 4 year term. Youngster cruise brougfit a 
new name, thanks to Butch-Squatty. Squatty 
was known for his ability to make 4 popcorn 
and to squeeze out of any situation Squatty's 
best time of the day was at noon meal and BUR- 
GERS, Bob always aimed for max gouge in his 
General Engineering major. Spring brought 
rugby and its parties for four different years Bob 
is leaning towards Navy air but, no matter what 
service Bob goes into, he is bound to bring 
credit to it.

A native of New Orleans, Bill left a year of 
NROTC at Tulane to become one of America's 
finest here at Canoe U. As a result of a little mis- 
understanding 4/c class year. Bill acquired the 
nickname "Maddog" which has stayed with 

Bill seemed to be the only guy who could 
shave at 700 and have a 5 o'clock shadow by 
8:00, He also became the company's resident 
ordnance expert, knowing firearm data dating 
back to the fall of the Roman Empire. Maddog is 
the Company's only ground grunt and will 
exchange his Navy blues for fVlarine greens in

After arriving at USNA from Elkhart, Indiana, 
Bulto soon developed a grave fear of water, 
especially during YP drills and swimming 
classes. The "Rock" in swimming also had a 
distaste for applied strength and even with a 3,6 
missed out on long weekends. On the week- 
ends, Bulto could usually be found at the 0-Club 
holding up his end of the shuffleboard table, and 
more likely than not, winning a few drinks. After 
graduation, he'll be heading for Pensacola and 
serving his time as an NFO. 


The challenge of doing it the hard way chal- 
lenged this lad to walk the hallowed halls of 
USNA Jose earned varsity soccer letters in 
plebe and 3/c years despite a bad knee. A Naval 
Architecture ma|or, the responsibilities of soccer 
captain and large volumes of coffee never kept 
Joe from hitting the rack by 2200 Some quick 
maneuvers 2/c year during a local car incident 
prevented him from earning a black N' from the 
"Mad Hatter." It was also then that Joe was 
seen a lot less due to a certain attraction in Col- 
lege Park. Success will follow whatever service 
selection brings 


Born into the Navy as a Navy junior, Ed plans 
on becoming a ship driver for awhile. With his 
home 4 hours away in Virginia Beach and his 
heart 2 hours away with a strawberry blonde in 
Jersey, no one really wonders where he is 5 of 6 
weekends with his Vega Always doing things on 
an impulse, he has kept people wondering what 
he'd do next, and with June coming, who knows 
what will happen between now and then'^ Was 
Ed really as "drifty" as some people think or did 
he know what was happening'? 


Leaving St. Louis and an NROTC scholarship 
at f\/IU, Ray came East to join the boys in blue at 
Canoe U, When 4/c academics proved no major 
problem, Enze soon became known as the 
"Gouge King." Enze roomed with Pretty Boy 
and Goose and a 5000 candle-power radioac- 
tive desk lamp. 2/c year saw Enze spending 
many a weekend with Goose doing steam labs 
He finally fell in love 1 /c summer, with a RD360 
Yamaha. Ray will enter flight school upon gradu- 
ation. Wearing glasses to "look intelligent" will 
keep Enze from being a pilot, but he may yet be 
giving directions to the likes of Squatty, Hogs, or 


Conman came to Navy from Toledo, Ohio. 
After breezing through plebe year, Conman 
earned distinction at such places as the bridge 
and park As a 2/c, he progressed to become a 
weekend fixture at the 0-Club and a shuffle- 
board champ Everyone realized by now that 
Conman was the cutest Mid around. Never one 
to take academics seriously, Conman spent 
most of his time in the wardroom waiting for ETV 
specials on his courses. He was the wardroom 
commander as a 3/c and remained so the next 
two years, Jim will be a valuable asset to the 
Surface navy 



"T J" Gadzala, the "Apeman," grew to be 
known by the Brigade as the Gorilla at pep ral- 
lies and football games during his final fling at 
Canoe U. Famous for his mug shots depicting a 
beautiful girl relaxing on each of his bulging 
biceps, Gadz finally found the golden mermaid 
of his protein powdered milk supplement. Gadz 
had his hard knocks with the lechers of the "Big 
3" — Melville, Isherwood, and Griffin — but sur- 
vived. Always long on imitative ingenuity, T.J 
and his roomie "Clugsy" teamed up to put on 
the "greatest two-man show on Earth" — Dra- 
cula and Egor. His Academy Award perform- 
ance featured Gadz draining the Supt and 'Dant 
of every red corpuscle. So it's on from Ashton, 
Pa. to Pensacola, Fla. and a run at the choppers 
in Navy air for Gadz.

JR. came to the Academy from the big state 
of Texas, the big town of Kilgore After miracu- 
lously escaping the AC board plebe year, he 
was determined not to let the "Nav" win in the 
world of books. As the "Gouge" started rolling 
in, J.R. started rolling out. On the weekends and 
whenever possible during the week. Being a 
jack-of-all-sports and master of none, he was 
found out on the field of intramurals with the rest 
of the high school hasbeens. Staying physically 
fit, he is headed for Pensacola m June He 
leaves us with this insight — If the minimum 
wasn't good enough, it wouldn't be the mini- 


The thrills of jet aviation lured "Hogues" to 
these hallowed halls. Goals and personal con- 
victions inspired his efforts academically and 
athletically, but his success was sooner 
achieved in the classroom. After 2 years of soc- 
cer and 3 years of golf, along with intramural 
football, Hogues finally found the answer in his 
left instep and put it to use for the 1 50's. Always 
one to party, Gary often got things going with a 
touch of St Louis flavor and class Pensacola is 
his next destination and being a squadron bach- 
elor his next ambition. Hopefully the "Good 
Times" will travel with him. 


"Clugsy" from Ambler, Pa. always managed 
to obtain applications for all the Rhoades and 
Burke scholarships with his 4.0. Using all his 
"Stars and Stripes" to advantage, he didn't miss 
one Ops Info good deal since he entered. During 
youngster year, Clugsy found an attraction 
"deep in the heart of Texas," where he spent 
most of his leave time. With this "Aggie" influ- 
ence, he brought back barn loads of annoying 
country-western music. Don was forever think- 
ing of ways to have the thickest beard in the Bri- 
gade Besides his enduring love for camping, 
skiing, motorcycles, and ripping the lax nets, he 
would make grand appearances as Egor, with 
Dracula (Gadz) during Army week. In his unend- 
ing quest to get out of P-rades and march-ons, 
BAC construction chairman was just the 
excuse, Don opted for Navy NFO and left the 
silent service to patrol on its own.

Where is the Naval Academy'? After a brief 1 
year stay in beautiful Bainbridge, "Hirls" discov- 
ered the campus of the University of Navy situa- 
ted on the banks of the Severn, right outside the 
grey walls of Crab Town. Shortly thereafter, Hir- 
lye abandoned his dream of playing college 
football to devote his energy to becoming a Pro- 
fessional Person and Human Officer. The first 2 
years saw "Hirls " shun the relaxation and fun at 
the Playhouse and Muhlmeister's to direct his 
efforts to academics Later "Butch" saw the 
light and could always be found in the wardroom 
or with Schlaef at the 0-Club Alas, all ""greats" 
must retire and intramural football will lose the 
'Lutz to Northrup' or "Northrup to Lutz' combos. 
Because of his determination and desire to suc- 
ceed, Hirls should become an excellent pilot if 
his MG doesn't break down on the way to Pen- 


Having established himself as 5th Company's 
fastest chowcaller, Donn soon became the rin- 
gleader of the 4-nng circus of insanity co-star- 
ring D. C. "Schlitz", "H. O," Rolle, and "The 
Goose." While his classmates were taking fixes, 
Donn, having co-authored the '72 Almanal 
sports record section, was "carrying on." 

Youngster year rolled around and Donn, out 
of the kindness of his heart decided to do his 
part for the overcrowded barbershop situation 
and boycott the shops altogether. Second class 
year brought a new arrival to Donn's 8-0 room 
facing the bay , a lamp that he used to study 
with, keep food warm, and to aid ships in dis- 
tress at night. After a short varsity football stint, 
he was a company b-ball, football, and softball 
stud Donn contented himself "an old high 
school friend." Marriage? "Nope, we're just 
good buddies." 


Leaving the sun drenched beaches of Califor- 
nia, Butch gave up the surf and the cuties in 
Santa Barbara to become a monk in Annapolis. 
His nickname survives as a remnant of his 4/c 
year transformation into a Navy man. Always 
subject to California dreaming. Butch appeased 
his yearning for the "good life" with Beach Boy 
albums, sci fi, a steady stream of new dates, and 
slashing m his major. Although his career in col- 
lege basketball was finally snuffed out by a good 
case of mono. Butch displayed his talents on the 
Co, team. Always known for his high ambitions 
and performance, Butch plans to find his home 
in the aviation community. 


Coming aboard from San Diego, California, 
Richard, or "Rollo," had little trouble adjusting 
to USNA. Rollo, a Navy youngster, adapted 
quickly to 4/c year and sailed through with mini- 
mum difficulty. After breaking off his short lived 
engagement, 3/c cruise primed this young man 
for years of enjoying the finer things in life. His 
outstanding performance for 3 years on the con- 
ditioning squad, netted him the head job of run- 
ning it His 1 /c year. Hollo's academic achieve- 
ments have kept him clear of all Ac boards thus 
far. 1 /c summer found Rollo laying back his ears 
and applying his law education to combat the 
Conduct Code And his red Super Bug was 
traded for a Porsche 91 IT. He is now destined 
to be another great Navy pilot. 


From Phoenix, Ariz, came A. D. Rolle on that 
long and memorable day in June '71. With his 
avid participation in all sports, especially 150 
football, and his genuine personality, it did not 
take long for Andy to don himself as everyone's 
"little buddy." Andy's diligent work in his man- 
agement courses and brilliant performance in 
signal competition may very well lead to a profit- 
able career as a Hotel Oscar manager Andy 
applied the Academy's approach for learning to 
his social life. Although the hands on training 
was often obnoxious, Andy's exploits and con- 
quests were secret to no one except the alleged 
victim His shifty eyes and devious manner make 
him a firm candidate for the NIS, but Navy air 
claims Andy first. 


After a long and thorough search for an east- 
coast Berkeley, Douglas Schlaefer finally 
decided on scenic USNA. After a quick adjust- 
ment he became resolved that this was the place 
from where he would graduate and he pro- 
ceeded to head in that direction Dunng his first 
two years Doug directed his best efforts toward 
Navy football and basketball, however, after 
much thought he gave up intercollegiate sports 
for intramurals As an aero major, he was forced 
to adapt to the tight schedule necessary in order 
to keep up with "Hirls" at the Friday and Satur- 
day night O'club scene. He has a better attitude 
toward the academy than most, but he is cer- 
tainly looking forward to the increased freedom 
to be found beyond the walls. Always one with a 
colorful comment, "Schlaef" is sure to bring 
success with him to Pensacola in his little red 


Ran-Dell came to the hallowed halls of Canoe 
U. from Columbia, South Carolina. He came to 
play Navy football, but he also built many memo- 
ries: getting tenacious for the games, going to 
Shady Grove, the linebacker, steerage runs, 
copping Z's, and Nuke Power. ANA MANNA 
allowed him to pursue the rack, yet retain a 
respectable CUM. Never to be caught with |ust 
one GAG, he was attracted to many After the 
game you could always find him with a babe and 
searching for a cool one and everybody search- 
ing for him. It was as if everybody was on his 
team He was willing to help anyone, with a 
brew, a babe, or a good time. He will make an 
effective contribution in Navy air, searching for 
those wings of gold. 


Jim came from the cornfields of Indiana to 
meet the rigors of USNA. During 4C summer, 
he immediately gained the high esteem of his 
classmates by uttering the famous words, "Mr. 
Saeward is, sir'" Finding a happy medium 
between books, the rack, and the tube, Jim 
faired well academically until 2nd semester, 2 C 
year, when much of his time was spent scrub- 
bing and waxing floors As if youngster cruise 
was not enough, Jim took his 1 C cruise on an 
oiler, and decided once and for all that surface 
line is not very fine and that submarines do it 
deeper Jim's future includes Nuclear Power 
school, a submarine, and Cammie.

George came to Canoe U from Florida. After a 
brief 4/C track career, "Goose" found his true 
calling m company b-ball, on the defense. 3/C 
year brought the evolution of the 32nd Com- 
pany karate club, a purple belt, and a broken 
nose Also 50 demos and 14 hours of "extra 
drill." 2'C year brought not only 2 stripes but 
also Thermo and Fluids, a possible cause for his 
receding hairline, 3 striper libs gave George time 
to put miles on his Fiat. Surface line will be even 
finer with George's addition, and he'll be a sur- 
face nuke unless Adm. Rickover says otherwise. 

"Give me a fast ship and a star to steer her by, 
for I intend to sail in harm's way." 


The "64 inch walking muscle" came from the 
great city of Columbus, Ohio, only 17 days out 
of high school. Born in Muncie, Indiana and a 
Hoosier at heart, he never enjoyed staying 
indoors. Participating in the USNA Karate Club, 
he has found a great love for the sport and a true 
philosophy for life. Known around the company 
area as "Short Sh-" or "Va Voom," many of his 
formations were in front of Baft Office on 
crutches. Choosing Navy air, he threw many 
people a curve ball, having professed the Corps 
as the only way to go since 4/C year. His cry 
has changed to "Fly Navy." Hopefully he will get 
his A-6 after Pensacola, so look out above. VA 


Ed drifted in from the rolling hills of Pennsylva- 
nia on that fateful day in June, ready to show the 
Navy how things are done. He soon found out 
that life as a 4'C can be a real "wall climbing" 
experience. Dedicating most of his time to 
becoming an ocean engineer, Ed still found time 
for Baft football and company intramurals, '\/\/hen 
he wasn't scuba diving or sitting behind the 
wheel of his TR-6, Ed could always be found ral- 
lying with the rest of the guys After graduation, 
Ed will be taking his knowledge and many fond 
memories aboard a nuclear sub somewhere in 
the deep blue sea. 


Chris, a local lad, came to the Academy after 
bagging it for a year at NAPS. 4/C year brought 
2 of Chris' most enduring qualities, the ability to 
bead and give people a hard time From the very 
beginning, he set his sights on the wings of gold. 
A change of mind came 3/C year when Chris 
was introduced to scuba diving, something he 
plunged into lustily. He could usually be found 
flipping around under the waters of the Natato- 
rium, photographing the dirt and dram holes. By 
service selection time, Chris wanted to go down, 
and he did so in a big way, Rickover's silent 
service. Also a spectacular fall from his position 
as a striper to that of a lowly MIR. As always, 
however, Chris (or Arden) looks forward to the 
challenge and promise of the future. 



Ralph, sometimes better known as "Tender- 
loin," was another one of those spoiled S. Cali- 
fornians who always had trouble adapting to the 
atrocious weather he found in (Vlaryland "Why

to USNA on an alternate appointment, but has 
run up a 3 4 Cum and- held a striper position 1 c 
year Ralph chose Ocean Engineering as his 
field of academic endeavor and NucPower as 
his service selection, (You can say goodbye to 
that sunshine now Ralph.) A sure bet for suc-

Wash was really better known as "BD," due 
to the exorbitant number of blind dates he 
accepted during plebe year. A native of Pitts- 
burgh, (or |ust plain Burg if you want to take 
chances with your mail) Wash came to the 
Academy and soon impressed everyone with his 
hard work, serious nature and dedication He 
swam for Navy plebe year and later for the Batt 
teams, where his favorite stroke was breast- 
stroke. Always wanting to hook things up, BD 
chose the EE major. Having worn glasses since 
high school, BD was never one to see Navy air 
In fact, after 1 c cruise, he was quoted as say- 
ing, "Submarines was the only way to fly "

Dennis, or Den as he was known by his class- 
mates and the Dough, came to Canoe U trom 
the sandy beaches of the California coastline It 
seems only natural that after graduation he will 
once again gain the title of Californian. More a 
serious person than -an out-going partier, Dennis 
spent most of his time, 4 years to be exact, 
thinking about the girl back home. It is with her 
and a relatively low QPR that he will face the 
rigors and challenges of NucPower school. 


If grades were given for TV at USNA, Doc 
would have a 4,0, Since he had already gone to 
4 years of college before becoming a Mid, he 
has not bothered cluttering his mind with knowl- 
edge these past few years. Doc has managed 
such feats as writing two term papers in the last 
two days of the semester then reading a novel in 
preparation for finals. His favorite saying when 
going to finals Is, "They can kill you, but they 
can't eat you." His other words of wisdom are 
unprintable, but that's not bad for the oldest 
member of the class. 


When Brodes was born, he was very nervous. 
Thank goodness his mother was there to com- 
fort him. The amazing thing is that out of 366 
possible days to be born, Brodes picked his 
birthday From that time on he wanted to go to 
the USNA The first words out of his mouth were, 
"How 'bout that Big Blue''" At USNA, he fell in 
with "the back shatters." His functions were to 
fence, tell jokes, and tube it with Dewey and 
Doc. Always a hard core surface liner, somehow 
Brodes ended up a Nuke Puke (surface) Some 
people would do anything for a career. Since he 
couldn't get a steady girl, he bought a steady 
car His weekends are now spent cleaning and 
waxing "Jesse," while he gets in his 25 hours 
for Adm Passover. Good luck at Mare Island

Mike didn't always want to be a grunt, but 
walking in the plowed fields back home in 
Mason just lent itself for marching. Outside of 
that, he would have to grow his hair out to be in 
the Navy. As company commander, he yelled 
his way into the company's heart . they 
needed something to warm themselves during 
the early morning hours of ED. Even though 
Mike took the road less travelled, he should 
make a hell of a dent in it 


II didn't take Dewey, or J. E., or Duke, or Sher- 
iff, 4 days to hitchhike from his home in Sagi- 
naw, Michigan; it was just a quick 2 hour plane 
ride to the big country club on the Severn Dew 
had good examples of leadership in order to set 
his sights from the first day. It started with Dilly 
and Horse, later, Rex and Michael. By 2/C year, 
he had a plebe popping his corn for him. Joe 
and Hebe were his roommates and will, no 
doubt, remain the closest of friends He was glad 
to finally be able to bring his car into the yard — 
legally, one of his many clunkers. Dewey could 
drink with the best of them, pitcher for pitcher, 
beer for root beer. But remember, "one way" 
with surface line, it's mighty fine. 


And now the end is near and so I face the final 
curtain. My friends, I'll say it clear, I'll state my 
case of which I'm certain. I've lived a life that's 
full, I've travelled each and every highway and 
more, much more than this, I did it my way 
Regrets, I've had a few but then again too few to 
mention I did what I had to do and saw it 
through without exemption I planned each 
chartered course, each careful step along the 
byway. But more, much more than this, I did it 
my way. Yes, there were times, I'm sure you 
know, when I bit off more than I could chew. But 
through it all when there was doubt, I ate it up 
and spit It out I faced it all and I stood tall and 
did It my way . . . The record shows I took the 
blows and did it my way. — Paul Anka. Chick 
now moves past the Ring Dance and Hop Com- 
mittee to Navy air. 


"Dune" was our resident Navy brat that we all 
turned to for help and guidance 4/C summer. 
Come Ac year, he too had problems showing 
the upperclass he was "squared away." He can 
attribute many an unforgettable come around to 
"Yak." 3/C year, "Dunk" bolted every opportu- 
nity and studied only enough to get by. He was 
married by 2/C 2nd semester. He was no longer 
any fun to go to the Circle with for some good 
old-fashioned wenching. After a June Week 
wedding, he and Deb are off to Pensacola. 
Hopefully, she will be able to keep him off those 
moonlit Florida beaches. 


Bob came from upstate New York and soon 
evolved into an incognito Joe. There were 
scenes from a mud major, bugs, hair, and light- 
weights to Shenandoah only with thanks to une- 
qualed understanding from h\s best friend. As 
Thoreau "would rather sit in the open air, for no 
dust gathers on the grass," his thoughts will 
always be just beyond that next woods where it 
belongs. He just wants to glance back someday 
to find It was all worth it.

Rex came to USNA from New Jersey — land 
of hardhats and godfathers. He spent plebe 
summer racking witfi the excused squad and the 
remainder of the year hiding from our favorite 
upperclass, for whom he still holds the most pro- 
found enmity. Rex had a serious academic prob- 
lem 1st semester plebe year but bounced back 
to be a consistent member of the merit list-long 
weekend team. Riding with the tide and going 
with the flow, Rextilow snaked another of our 
classmates and ended up in the Bay. The sign 
said, "Rex is hooked" and they were right. Rex 
became a day student at U of N and looks to the 
twenty-first as well as the fourth. He has hoped 
from the start, just as all of us, that USNA will be 
a nice place to be from . . . far, far away from. 


I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas on March 31, 
1 953. My present home is Ofallon, Illinois, where 
I have lived for the past 1 6 years. I went 8 years 
to Shiloh Grade school and 4 years to Ofallon 
High School, lettering in baseball and football, 
besides receiving several academic honors. 
From high school I came straight to the Acad- 
emy. During my 4 years here I have majored in 
Operations Analysis. My Intramural sports have 
been company basketball, lightweight football, 
and slow pitch softball My plans for the future 
are to go into the Naval aviation field of service, 
and hopefully on to post-graduate school. I 
presently have no marriage plans. 


The sun had slowly risen 

And the stars fell from my eyes 
So when my time was through 

There was no darkness in my skies 
For I came only to leave 

But many were changed by their lies. 

And many still remained 

Amid the bitter, disenchanted cries 
While those who looked on 

Were given well-intended false replies 
But I ask does it matter'' 

Darkness as the sun sets and dies.

"J, T," as James was better known by his 
classmates, came to USNA from amidst the rush 
hour traffic of a busy Washington, D.C. suburb. 
While at the Academy, J, T has participated in 
both sports and musical activities. Being a dili- 
gent worker and true believer of having a good

Gary came to USNA from the "Little Sweden 
of America" back in Center City, Minnesota The 
Bay area never did suit our Scandinavian hot- 
shot and leaving it behind will come none too 
soon. You could usually find "Deeno" in his 
room "physicating," but if he wasn't there, he 
was sure to be rowing on the Severn, just him 
and his oar ... In fact, if he was near water at 
all, you can bet he was on it because swimming 
just wasn't one of his most loved sports here at 
USNA. Now 4 years have gone by and his life as 
a tvlid has come to a close The Marine Corps 
has gained another "fine man" to become a part 
of their team. 


Oh, Greg came from a country called the Mid- 
west Finding out the lessons on survival here 
early, he can remember often failing them early. 
He weathered many a storm in a mind filled with 
songs of Dylan and dreams of tomorrow. Dis- 
covering that, "It never hurts when you smile," 
he shrugged off ridicule and jest with brief 
smiles, finding it easy to laugh at himself Now 
that he is leaving, he wishes to reach for a 
thought that is a part of hina; and it goes like this: 

"I see my light come shining 

From the West unto the East 

Any day now, any day now, 

I shall be released." 

— Bob Dylan

Thinking twice of California, Allan packed his 
guitars and other implements of creation . . . 
did two about faces and leaped forward into the 
midst of a familiar unknown. Within this 
unknown, he gained familiarity with the sciences 
and the great grandsons of clipper ships, and 
fused them each unto their musical own. 
Through the experimental years, the unknown 
clarified, so too did Allan. Once an "artist," now

Anyone with a name like Udick has to have 
problems 4/c year. From bowing to the Batt 
Commander to just standing around looking 
. . . Then his hand reached out and wrapped 
around the sensuous curves of a Nikon and 
"Click" Udick was born. Living from June Week 
to June Week, the pictures flowed and the dem- 
ents rose. Steve is the only civilian attending 
USNA and receiving a degree in seducing girls 
with a camera. California dreaming, as well he 
should have been, his eyes dimmed by trying to 
see coast to coast by telephone each Sunday 
night. His eyes gone, his chances for glory in the 
sky changed to a beach, a girl, and a destroyer 
in the Golden State. 


Four years of hard work for development of 
the human machine, all in preparation for the 
future. One challenge leads to another and 
you're always one step away from being caught 
up. Maybe someday the future will come and the 
race finally won. 


Weaves has managed to sleep through four 
years of higher education at Canoe U. Plebe 
year he managed to wake up enough to almost 
be run out here by "a Southern gent." Z-Power 
gave him his first real recognition when he fell 
out of his chair in tune to Prof. Potter's mono- 
tone. There are places in Griffin Hall stating, 
"Weaver slept here." He managed to ram the 
pier during an Ops and Tactics drill (he says he 
wasn't asleep) and still get the Ops and Tactics 
award for his class. Weaves had a habit of sleep- 
ing his way to the merit list in Marine Engineer- 
ing and should do as well in Nuc Power.

The "Baugh" was Topeka, Kan. 's contrib- 
ution to USNA's class of 75. Being part of his 
nature, Baugh could rarely get very serious 
about much of anything. His humorous antics 
often made life at USNA much easier to take. 
After 4/C year Baugh took life as upperclass 
right in stride. Weekends always found Larry 
dragging some young lovely, often a different 
one from week to week. Also, he began his 
career as a master barber each night preceding 
the noon meal "grease" jnspection. In academ- 
ics, the Baugh was always Sat, but never a 
"slash." Always looking for a good time, he had 
the main hand in planning many of our parties. 
Larry will always be remembered as a great 
friend, always willing to lend a hand. 


Entering in blindness, adjusting in disbelief, 
and progressing with a focus on independent 
thought, while marching to the beat of a com- 
mon drummer. Such was the growth of Mike, 
who came to USNA from Potomac, Md., where 
he can still be found on most weekends. Fortu- 
nately, he was usually the drummer, so the 
cadence was comfortable, and resulted in an 
experience which was not only productive but 
enjoyable. Before taps, the band room was the 
most likely place to find "Stubbs." However, if 
after taps he was not in the rack the inspector 
would probably report him lost. In addition, the 
books never seemed too far off. They filled the 
idle hours and gave a purpose to the rest of the 
routine. Surface line awaits in June, and then 
King Neptune takes over from Mother "B"

into the music world and spent most ot his free 
time enjoying the virtues ot the recording indus- 

Bob's big accorriplishment 1 /c year was to 
join the 4000 series liberty sub squad at Man (0). 
Through it all, Bob has hung in there, displaying 
his prowess on the athletic field as well as find- 
ing enough time to make it to a tew mixers 

On a more serious note. Bob has won the 
respect of all of his classmates. We have confi-

in the future. 


The artful dodger (fan) can be seen daily 
drawing caricatures of his classmates comment-

"the pen is mightier than the sword" certainly 
holds true here; besides Bob's sword manual 
leaves much to be desired. Lately Robert's 
"fleet" feet have even been carrying him away 
from the track towards the thriving metropolis of 
Glen Burnie in order to join those "wusses" who 
have gone before him (nice ring Bob') During 
Plebe year Robert was spending his time setting 
a new USNA record for the most posters drawn 
in one year while still managing to produce one 
of the highest academic averages in the Bri-

still intact His signing out in search of food set

More affectionately known as "H. D," Greg 
came to USNA as a hard charging gymnast. 
After earning his N" plebe year, his gym career 
at Navy was cut short by a series of injuries 
combined with a desire to pursue more aca- 
demic endeavors. 

Greg has great taste in girls and after three 
years of solitude, he could be seen, (or not be 
seen), spending his first class year chasing 
down his own ray of sunshine, and trying his 
best to be a non-existent entity. To date no one 
has yet understood how someone with his taste 
could own a banana yellow V-dub to truck 
around in, but then again, there are some things 
1 that we'll never know about him. 

Taking life seriously seemed to be a character 
I trait, but that fang never failed to show through 
I in the end Pensacola bound from USNA. We 
wish him the best of luck and life. 


I exist as I am, that is enough. 

If no other in the world be aware, I sit content. 

And if each and all be aware I sit content. 

One world is aware and by far the largest to me, 

and that is myself. 

And whether I come to my own today or in ten 

thousand or ten million years. 

I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal 

cheerfulness I can wait. 

My foothold is tenon'd and mortis'd in granite, 

I laugh at what you call dissolution. 

And I know the amplitude of time . . .

Paul acquired many nicknames from his 
beloved classmates; "Pablo." "The Amazing 
PKB," "Barreto," or "Beeto " These are the 
ones that stuck. Paul came to USNA via NAPS 
and the "Exclusive Los Altos area," leaving 
behind a young budding blonde. An AnaMana 
major, his room was always a major stopping-off 
point in any successful gouge hunt. After much 
optimistic endeavor on the gridiron, "Beeto" 
found more pleasure in the arms of the ever 
popular and beautiful "Spaline." Paul's biggest 
dilemma came arouncf the time of 1 /c cars. After 
all, where do you park a three acre plot of beau- 
tiful California desert and a Nikon Gamers'? "You 
all just wait until I get my Porche 911 Targa." 
Tell you what, Paul, we'll hold our breath, but in 
the meantime there's always the wife's car. If 
Paul doesn't manage to B.S. the entire base at 
Pensacola right out of the state, he just may 
manage to pin those wings on. One thing is for 
certain, he will make as lasting an impression 
down there as he did here Anyone care to 


Oh. wow, hi. Oh, man. that's a real cigar! It'll 
blow your head right off I'm hungry. Are you 
hungry'? I'm hungry and this stuff is great. I've 
been eating it all night. Oh, it's ... uh ... oh, 
yeah, pinto beans and Neapolitan ice cream and 
something. Look at that candle' It never stops 
melting. Never' Like my brain. Huh, Huh, huh! 
Hey man, have you seen my coaf Oh the coat is 
old and gnarly . . . huh, huh, huh' Oh wow, 
have you ever seen anything like this before'? No 
not like this party, man. I mean like the way I 
stacked up these ashtrays. Don't they look like a 
castle, or a bunch of flying saucers waiting to 
take off, or a tape recorder with carrots Instead 
of dials'? Huh, huh, huh' Oh yeah isn't that 
greaf? I don't know what it is. It's pinto beans 
and Neapolitan ice cream and some thing. 
Seems like I've been eating it forever . . . 


A behemoth sauntered from the forest sur- 
rounding Quantico and quickly left his mark on 
the Naval Academy, and also his roommates by 
warping any common sense that they once had. 
Plebe year, the sounds of an African jungle 
could be heard radiating from his room while he 
harrassed his roommates by one-arm hanging 
from the upper-rack, the Venetian blinds, the 
shower-rod and whatever else was readily avail- 
able A natural leader, Grant was affectionately 
called, "f^r Begley," and commonly known as 
"Sir." With his soft-spoken, easy going nature, 
he seldom killed things larger than a hippo A 
very personable individual he will undoubtedly 
make an important contribution to the career 
that he chooses — be it garbage collection, 
ditch-dlgging. the Marine Corps, or something

At the age ot one he was drinking whiskey and 
gin. At the age ot two he was eating the bottles 
that they came in. Whoever heard of anyone 
named, "Chalker"'!' But having come from a 
town in Florida called, Callahan, what can be 
expected"^ Few people will ever rival Chip's 
knowledge and experience in scuba diving, fool- 
ish jokes and the life and history of Dolomite. It 
was during the "Bearded Clams" Christmas 
party during plebe year, that Chalker was finally 
recognized for his ability to pronounce words in 
English "Wanna buy some stationery?" Besides 
an unusual oral ability, Chalker also demon- 
strated an ability to write grease chits with 
unparalleled atticism. "Wanna buy a garter for 
your girl''" Having brought his car up during 
youngster year, Chalker's numerous attempts to 
get a car violation were almost fruitful; when he 
loaned a friend his car he got a parking ticket for 
parking overnight at Dahlgren Hall. "Wanna buy 
a bumper sticker''" Never shy about anything, 
Chalker almost always was able to speak out on 
any subject. You name it and Chalker probably 
sold it. 


Fred rolled into the open arms of Mother B 
with all the optimism and ambition of a civilian 
turned Plebe. He had just won a National Roller 
Skating Championship and figured to roll over 
Navy as well. Scarred by his boyhood in Long 
Island, Fred mastered his speech impediment 
and won fame and success as the company 
runt. Ensuing years found him "axing" ques- 
tions and academics in the world of Aerospace 
Engineering; and, his cheerfulness, and opti- 
mism practically burned Bancroft Hall. Free 
weekends were spent in pursuit of two legged 
happiness; and, even freer summers found him 
either skydiving or on one of many trips to the 
Father country along the Rhine. An Italian by 
name, but a German at heart, Fred hopes to be 
the first to Goosestep on Mars by way of Pensa- 
cola and Test Pilot School. 


Dave, alias the "Bucker," came floating in 
from the steel mills of Pittsburgh with just his 
eternal gnn and his famous slide ruler contain- 
ing the dreaded unknown functions. Aided by 
this marvel of modern technology (and perhaps 
a little intelligence), he proceeded to validate 
every course offered — and even a few that 
weren't. He could usually be found at his post in 
"gouge central" assisting people in anything 
from Russian to the more esoteric chemistry. 
This action was highly reflected in his grease 
and caused him to become the "Apple" of Cap- 
tain Moustache's "Eye," It also greatly assisted 
him in attaining the dubious honor or the "now 
you see it, now you don't Trident Scholarships." 
With all of his attributes, it is hard to conceive of 
any obstacles (except the wall) in his path to 
becoming an excellent officer.

Stephen B Coppins, better known as Burch, 
came to USNA via St. Petersburg, Florida Steve 
came to the Naval Academy in hopes of follov^^- 
ing in his father's footsteps, but it didn't take 
long before he decided being a lifer in the 
fvlarine Corps was not for him. Starting off as an 
Economics major, it was before he decided 
International Relations and Foreign Affairs 
looked like an easier way to go Not being the 
studious type Steve spends most of his time 
either sleeping, watching TV, or over at the high 
jump pit. Steve, an I star winner since Plebe year 
as a high jumper, is still looking for that magic 
seven foot mark Graduation will find Burch back 
in sunny Florida studying to be a Navy pilot, and 
a good husband to his one and only, Mary Lynn. 


Mike rolled into USNA in late June with his 
hair a mop and his mind a-muck. But what more 
could we expect, it's a long way from Nebraska. 
He soon stood up, brushed off, which he found 
he would become quite good at and began won- 
dering what all the green stuff was. Trees? 

With his goals set, Mike floated into the Acad- 
emy, touching ground not once. He soon began 
pelting the academic program with 4.0's but it 
stood fast, not giving a nanometer and in frustra- 
tion he carried-on in the second regiment, only 
to be caught. This couldn't get a good man 
down any lower than his rack though and that is 
where one could find USNA's most sought after 
E.I. source 

Mike tried anything and everything once. Wild 
women and strange ways are only sentences in 
his novel of life. Mike is respected by all though 
and any doubts go anguished Mike is a strohg 
person in mind and soul and will carry his assets 
through life and serve those he represents well 
be it on or under the sea. 


Everyone knew that "salty Sam" was a vet- 
eran mariner from the first time we all heard his 
"country cadence-call" during plebe summer. 
Although at first strongly tied to his hometown 
on the eastern sho' by his pet-kitten, he soon 
learned to follow those immortal words of the 
"Bopper" and give them all a chance — "cause 
baby you knooow what I like" 

Reds will long be remembered for his feet — 
whether on the soccer field "cutting" on the 
boards, boogeyin', or streakin' before that hot 
iron could strike. (We didn't get burned bad, but 
we sure did get our Ns blackened ) 

And, as for Dennis' menaces that will follow 
after him, they would do well to study the exam- 
ple of his ideology, which we can only ineptly 
describe as- — 

"When the great score keeper comes 
To write beside your name the final tally, 
He writes, not whether you won or lost, 
But if you scored'"

Walking to the Academy, Rob was no stranger 
to scenic Annapolis. A soccer player by trade, 
Rob, spent several seasons picking the balls up 
around various fields in the area. Never willing to 
sacrifice any time, Rob wore out at least 3 
matresses at the Academy, Gifted with two rare 
abilities, the ability to write with his left hand and 
the ability (given two courses) to pick the easiest 
one Rob strolled through the Academy walking 
around most obstacles, A helo pilot by choice, 
Rob will be joining a few others in his class in 
Pensacola after graduation. 


Marty, better known as Mort to his many 
friends, came to Mother B from that well known 
clean American city, Baltimore. While attaining a 
five-striper position and lettering in two varsity 
sports plebe year, Mort even found time a cou- 
ple of weekends to frequent Lou's and rally with 
the boys. As often happens the sports stayed 
and the stripes disappeared but not to the dis- 
may of Mort, who proved to be a true party man 
Mort never left a half a beer at any party, and he 
holds the distinction of fertilizing bushes at two 
o'clock in the morning, without the fertilizer. 
Mort's partymate and fiancee, Debbie would 
undoubtedly say that "good things do come in 
small packages" as they pack the super-bad 
bug and head for sunny Florida and flight

Steve's career at Canoe U has been the suc- 
cess story of all time Coming from Pittsburgh, 
Steve had no trouble adjusting to military life as 
long as he had his pipe in one hand and coffee 
mug in the other. He majored in Naval Architec- 
ture, and his chief goal is to build boats. His 
experience in a jazz band while in high school 
enabled him to perform on the NA-10 at the 
Academy His saxophonic sounds swept the 
girls off their feet; — too bad, girls, he's already 
taken' A glutton for punishment, Steve loved to 
run a few miles a day" and joined the Varsity 
Track team for a season. During the first part of 
his 1 /c summer, he became a member of the 
engineering team aboard the Alcoa Seaprobe 
for three weeks, and never once managed to fall 
overboard despite 35 degree roles. He will long 
be remembered. 


Alias "Eddie Masker," alias Stickpin, alias The 
Hulk, alias Univac Three times the winner of the 
"Mr, Coordination" award. Able to leap tall 
buildings in a single nested loop, owns 10% of 
all stock in Dr Pepper Corporation, His grease 
developed into a fnction force shortly after his 
arrival from Tomball, Texas. Bruce is a genuine 
good guy. He would stand a watch over a long 
weekend or help with homework if you really 
needed it. A rapier like personality combined 
with sardonic wit, put many in their place. Com- 
bined with an equally fascinating roommate, 
"The Bucker," Bruce and Buck teamed together 
youngster and second class year to win the 
sought after Captain Garcia Popularity Award. 
Whatever Bruce does for service selection, the 
Navy needs more people like him. Good Luck

Tom came to Annapolis hailing from the 
Windy city, living in Alexandria, Virginia and 
never really finding the answer to his question, 
"Why''" T J's easy-going personality endeared 
him to many and his outside activities made him 
popular throughout the Brigade, With his inter- 
ests switching from Navy Baseball and grades to 
grades and partying, T. J, was always ready for 
a party at any time (even in the middle of the 
week) and diligently trained on the red-white 
and blue 12 ouncers. The "blindness" prior to 
the Pensacola flight during 2/c summer, the 
partying government van at the VMI game, the 
48-hour study weeks and their required all- 
nighters, the madcap ED episodes 1 /c year 
and his ability to wear a constant smile despite 
adversity will all be remembered. 

One day he came drifting in off the jet stream 
Look' Up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. No 
it's — It's an anchor' Tossed unmercifully by the 
winds yelling, "Reel me in'" He hurtled down- 
ward with the vengance of mighty Thor upon the 
heads of '72, '73, '74 and yes, even '75 His 
illustrious academic career began with dashing 
charge into "double E" Later, he swallowed 
physics whole as being more general, it should 
as well be easier. A glaring triumph of logic, it 
would have to come from such a truly prodigal 
mind. Hailing from San Diego (by the sea), he 
was a natural for command Having earned his 
priceless D in command, he sailed far and wide, 
lashing his rats into action, leaving awe and ter- 
ror in his wake for all who dared strike 'cross his 
path And now for his finale, an exploit to dim all 
who preceded him What else but to once again 
take to the air, "his five year mission to explore 
new worlds, to seek out new civilizations ... to 
boldly go where no man has gone before" 

Barrel-chested Tom came to us from 'just out- 
side of Philly.' Don't worry Tom, nobody thinks 
you have an accent Floating from the haziness 
of Economics to the more rewarding field of 
International Relations, he'll always be remem- 
bered for taking top honors in Navigation Never 
one to frequent a barbershop, Tom went beyond 
normal lengths and opted for the Barreto barrier 
Winning the blue ribbon for his infinite library of 
trivia and nostalgia. TJs mere presence never 
failed to go unnoticed The lucky few who had 
the golden opportunity to share the same class- 
room with Tom have just two words to say about 
his attentiveness 'Well done'' One whiplash 
case was enough so we know it won't happen at 
Pensacola Oh, by the way, nice notes Tom — 
save them for future laughs A genuinely good 
friend, it goes without saying that everyone 
wishes Tom the best of everything in the future 
May your clippers and barber pole never tarnish

Jim left his 'cycle in California along with his 
charter membership in the Angels to come to 
Annapolis and be one of the cream of the crop; 
one of America's 4000 finest Quickly discover- 
ing the truth, he decided to stay anyway. Suc- 
cessfully surviving plebe summer was no trouble 
but plebe year brought two new problems to 
face, one by the name of 'Violent' Vaughn and 
the other by the name of 'Crazy Man' Harop. 
Yet, even the combined effort of those two didn't 
manage to suppress Jim He let his guard down 
one night and fell victim to the 'war games dur- 
ing study hour' syndrome. Oh, well, there goes 
another engineer. Jim's final project here was to 
chase Patty until Patty caught him. I am not sure 
who did more planning, her or Jim, however, 
suffice it to say, Jim has been house trained and 
domesticated by now Whatever Jim ends up as, 
a school teacher or career officer, I am sure he 
will be good. So Best Wishes and Good LuckH!

A confirmed partier. Space tripped over from 
San Leandro to amaze everyone he towered 
over Having many unusual traits, Jim kept a 
stream of roommates convinced that life at 
USNA need not be boring. Such abilities as 
being able to sleep only with loud acid-rock 
music, to borrow anything, to nickname every- 
one, to talk only in "jive," to rock without a rock- 
ing chair, to eat live bugs, to build anything with 
his biology dissection set combined with a col- 
lection of drawings of the human eye made his 
room one of the best free shows around Who 
else would miss a bus in Pennsylvania and casu- 
ally hitch back to Mother B only to get fried for 
riding the 'vator? Space will go Gator Navy on an

From the big city of Detroit comes a big man 
At 6'5" tall, weighing 265 lbs , one can often 
hear in the halls. "You can make it'" Being a 
management major does not allow Larry many 
hours of TV or sleep, but he seems to squeeze 
by as any other 4 man would. Besides being 
known for his agility and speed on the athletic 
field, "Danks' " soft gentle voice can be heard 
cheering his teammates on to victory. Danks is 
about the only man I know in the Brigade that 
can make a living off of Navy Football and 
"Bean-o." All jesting aside, "Danks" is one of 
the best friends a man can have. Navy air is get- 
ting one of "many" good men. 


Known as Dl or DI-BO by most of his friends, 
Brian will be remembered as the undisputed 
Wedgee King of the company One of Stu-balls 
chosen few, he could often be found on the ter- 
race in the wee hours of the morning, usually in 
the company of one or more Huds. As Oragoru, 
Son of Oratfioru, he annually made a pilgrimage 
to Oceana in his maroon chariot, returning with 
tales of adventure Weekends found Brian at the 
best parties in town or with his favorite "tree." 
Dl's humor and wit never failed and kept us 
laughing, even when things got hard. Navy air 
won't soon forget this addition to its number 


Joe came to us from the thriving metropolis of 
Rocky Hill, Conn He soon found his true calling,

didn't get much marching done Joe did well in

waste your study hour Whenever Joe came in 
the room, no more studying. Weekends found 
Joe taking out Debbie to Walt Disney movies 
and high school sock hops All kidding aside, 
Joe will be a valuable addition to the fleet.

Known for his proverbial comment . . .', 
Jimmy has excelled in his 4 years at the Naval 
Academy not only in grades but also in profes- 
sional training. Even though he lost his beloved 
and true roommate "Freddie Bear," he has 
endured the hardships of the Academy with 
ease. His favorite things include pumpkin and 
calling Earl, The shakes sometimes get to him, 
but a good old fashioned remedy cures that. His 
silly car gets him where he wants to go, and it 
looks like he's going places with nuclear power 


Fred had never heard of the USNA until 3 
months before induction day Fred had his 
sights on a scholarship and basketball. Perhaps 
this explains why the first night of 4/C summer 
he put on civies and walked out After starting in 
November Company, Fred came back to bigger 
things. He worked hard and made varsity b-ball 
as a 3/C — too bad he played only 1 minutes, 
Fred later became known as Earl Gross He is 
famous for being the funniest person he knows 
— never slow to laugh at his own jokes. After his 
years at the Naval Academy, you will probably 
be able to find Fred in Naval aviation. 


"Charbo" could be found many a night mak- 
ing models, or giving his money away to other 
Mids in a friendly poker game, Charlie goes by 
many aliases, such as "Charbo," but his most 
famous is "Chuck," Many weekends during 2/C 
year, Charbo was out giving flying lessons in his 
Firebird, specializing in the barrel roll — a sort of 
Chuck Knievel, Charlie has been rewarded 
many times over for these flying lessons. His 
most prized are 3 black "N's," which he dis- 
plays proudly in his room Hardly ever did a 
Form 1 come out without Charbo's okaying it by 
initialing. Maybe Charlie's experience in barrel 
rolls will help him as an NFO, 


Out of the blue of a Nevada sky came Dan 
"The Man" Gonda, Dan flew into the Academy 
with high hopes of being a Navy pilot, but 4 
years and 40,000 hours of studying later has 
found Don using a seeing eye dog. If the eye 
chart had been pictures of girls, he would be a 
pilot now, but the alphabet has delegated Dan to 
an NFO's seat. Eventually there'll be a girl sly 
enough to catch him, the question is when. Cer- 
tainly enough of them have had a chance. If 
Dan's half as deadly with his radar and missiles 
as he is on the Rugby field and with the girls, 
he'll be the best NFO in the air. 


Dana came to Canoe U from Ogallala, 
Nebraska, His strong faith in himself and his very 
own table of priorities allowed him to actively 
pursue the Drama Bug through Masqueraders, 
His claim to fame there, aside from the actual 
"To be or not to be , , ," bit, is Vice-Prexy in 
Charge of Drama, Very few people know that he 
is really a lady killer, completely crushing two 
young lovelies at Hood College, Dana's "true 
love" was found 1 /C sunfimer, a lovely number, 
Sebring Satellite, Dana's athletic and academic 
endeavors will go into history books, especially 
Heinz's and his academic advisors' copies, 
Dana's self determination and winning personal- 
ity will carry him a long way , , , 


Hickbo, always on the prowl for new peace 
tunes, established the unprecedented record of 
never leaving the Mid Store or "For The 
Record" without a new album and a Rolling 
Stone. His meticulous care for his stereo gear 
was matched only in the care he took of his hair 
which he managed to comb at least 35 minutes 
a day. Though an academic mug, his favorite 
pastime was killing brain cells. He could always 
be seen on the weekend with a young Miller's in 
one hand, beads around his neck, and a glazed 
look in both eyes. A b-ball wizard, potential 
freak, semi-obno, computer magician and a 
good dude, no matter what Stu says

Ric IS one of few Navy juniors, coming here 
from his easy going life in San Diego. Academics 
were such a breeze he took to telling swimming

Youngster cruise was a nice father-son vaca- 
tion. Along with high grades, Ric has pestered 
the company with paddle-ball and other things 
he does well. This year has provided a deviation 
from his weekend devotion to Navy, finally. 
Those seldom spoken words, "I gotta get outa

has spent most of his 4 years at USNA tune 
hunting on his bike. Weekends don't seem to 
come fast enough for Carl and he gets by the 
rest of the week by sitting down and having a 
friendly talk with the nearest plebe. As an avid 
fan of Navy football, Carl has managed to attend 
every pep rally and listen to every home game 
on the radio in some bar. Known for his march- 
ing ability and excellent military appearance at 
formations, Carl is having a hard time deciding 
between military service and civilian line Right 
now. Nuclear Power looks mighty fine. 


Known to his classmates and ex-roommate as 
"Smitty" or "VBLoll Troll," When not out burly-

ties, he could always be found pursuing his

rack and his favorite pastime — hacking. He 
was the only man ever to survive a flying lesson 
with Charbo. Still he was one of the few guys 
anybody would trust at their back in a gang fight 
— or to take out Louise — even if it is redun- 
dant. Despite everything he was still about the 
best friend anybody had. What a mug!

he's become a devoted almost-husband 
("how's June 7th sound'!'") pushing neutrons at 
Mare Island, McNuff's interests are varied; on

Butch is living proof that all middies who have 
girls when they arrive at USNA do not lose them 
during their four year tenure Having been mar- 
ried since high school. Butch has endured and 
endured. Hailing from the nearby, thriving 
metropolis of Parkville, Wilhelm could often be 
seen rooting for the hapless Colts or any other 
hometown favorite. Between trips to New York, 
Butch spent many enjoyable hours studiously 
pursuing academics. Butch's avid interest in 
athletics and alcoholic beverages, and his favor- 
able reputation as company barber aided him in 
establishing many lasting friendships. Should 
Butch's career as an officer be as successful as 
his tour at USNA, we must all agree that he will 
be a credit to the nuclear power officer corps. 


Lured from the innocence and simple pleas- 
ures of Scotland, South Dakota, to the fleshpots 
of Annapolis. Johnny Downer soon carved his 
unique niche in the hearts and minds of those 
with whom he came in contact (or collided) 
Enjoying the curses and blessing of a temper to 
match the color of his usually overabundant hair 
(with a caustic tongue as well), he time after time 
endeared himself to OOO's company officers, 
roommates, and Bible-beaters all over Bancroft 
Of course life does have its rough spots — but 
what better to do during June Week than stare at 
the 8th wing parking lof^ Lead driver in the toy- 
ota demolition derby, runner extraordinary, and 
a man who said. "Lips that touch liquor will 
never mine." actually, under all that uncombed 
hair sits a fairly penetrating person, sometimes 
looking sarcastically at surrounding flora and 
fauna (especially the two-legged kind), and 
sometimes showing that humanity he often tries 
to hide. Navy Air (and maybe civilian line some 
years hence) will do well to have him. 


Jon started off on the right foot here at USNA, 
or should I say the right knee. Yes. he was one 
of the first of our class to allow the medical 
department to examine his patella from the 
inside out. He recovered fortunately and in the 
middle of his Mid career joined that elite squad 
of wave beaters. Navy Crew. He played just as 
hard on the academic field spending many an 
evening with his sensors probing the wires 
books to learn the EE facts of life The dedication 
here paid off for our first set Regimental Com- 
mander, and the Corps got one of Iowa's finest

James Droddy or "Vidor" arnved at the Acad-

good old USNA. His enjoyment of life and the 
pleasures of hunting and fishing even impressed 
his roommate Nights filled with stubborn argu- 
ments and "deal-um" gave way to "all- 
nighters" and weekends in Virginia as the hits 
just kept on coming. A sincere and earnest per- 
son Jim has persevered through the worst with 
the rest of us and survived. Either Navy Air or 
Surface Line will get a serious officer who will 
strive to do his best all the time. The best of luck 
to him. 


"Max," everybody's friend, could always be

ball, ISO's, lacrosse, and one swim meet. He 
finally found a home in the boxing rings of 
McDonough Hall With Coach Smith as his new 
Daddy he now had the security that made his life 
complete. I doubt you could call him the aca- 
demic wizard, but he'd never trade his "good 
times" for the personality that those types have! 
Max's life long dream has been to be a jet 
jockey Looks like he'll do it the man's way by 
going Marine Corps No matter where you may 
find him I'm sure he'll tell you in his hometown

tor, he sallied forth against the windmill of Aeros- 
pace Engineering, His love for swimming, and 
the Call of the Academica wrestled for his atten- 
tion the first three semesters before he sat down 
and began to seriously study Kutta, Joukowsky, 
von Karman, Navier and Stokes, But it was actu- 
ally a chance encounter with a beautiful person, 
and an epiphany that changed his whole life. 
After that, the future under Nuclear Power 
looked particularly promising, and thus he set

unremembered acts of kindness and of love."

Oz, the company's stereo and music expert, 
came to us from a farm way out in Viking land 
He never really related to USNA. Pro-courses

and he kept saying the system was screwed up 
The last fact caused a letter to be sent from a 
great and all powerful one who did not like to 
hear that. Oz spent three years as a football 
manager, but took it in during his senior year 
Sometimes football took away from academics, 
but it appears as if Oz will graduate to an even- 
tual short career as an NFO. The Navy will have 
to do some fast talking to keep Steve from 
returning to the peaceful life in the Land of

"DP." hails from the booming metropolis of 
Paw Paw, l\/lichigan. A firm believer in the philos- 
ophy of cooperation for graduation, he devel- 
oped a major where there is just about no one to 
cooperate with — Naval Architecture. His good 
attitude towards the books and his will to 
become a success have stood him in good stead 
throughout his career here. Things went 
smoothly until the "silver bullet" (vette) was 
found in the wrong place. But with this Black N 
behind him and in possession of a respectable 
QPR, he can only look forward to the future. 
Waiting tor his graduation is a pretty little home- 
town "l\/lissy" who seems to have stolen his 
heart. On the career side, if there was such an 
animal as a Nuclear Power NFO, that's probably 
what he would be Whichever selection he 
makes, he will be more than welcome, due to his 
fine mind for figures (the numbers kind), as well 
as his friendly and ambitious personality.

Pat came to the banks of the Severn having 
seen the ocean only once as a seven year old 
His hometown of Independence, Missouri had 
little to offer in the way of water sports, but after 
a knee in|ury made it impossible to play football 
and run track, he took to sailing like a fish to 
water. The afternoons and weekends would 
nearly always find him racing aboard one of the 
yawls or Class "A" yachts, and he served as 
commodore of the Midshipmen Sailing Squad- 

Pat's love for the Navy is only exceeded by his 
determination to succeed This is reenforced by 
his self-description as "an individual of medio- 
cre ability by high motivation". We wish him the 
best of luck as he wings his way through the 
skies of Pensacola and into the Fleet 

"Don't complain about how the ball bounces, 
if you dropped it." 


Torgs came to the U. of Navy by way of 
Brooklyn, N Y. Bent on proving the worthless- 
ness of a Bull Major, Torgy tackled the tough 
Naval Architecture major and mastered it quite 
well. Claiming there is an equation to explain 
everything, he is currently on an exhaustive 
search for the equation to solve the problem of a 
gas guzzling vette How about vette + gas does 
not equal Mids' pay' A spurned jock from the 
basketball team, he turned from this unsuccess- 
ful venture into competition on equally unsuc- 
cessful intramural teams. First class year has 
Torgy on Navy's Sailing team as well as on his 
way to Adm. Rickover's office and entrance into 
the Nuke Navy. As for tf-iis venture, Torg's equa- 
tion of success and happiness is: Total number 
of surfaces must be greater than or equal to the 
number of dives. 


Vano gave up his salmon-slapping pig calling

He's from Navy, right Jim'' Jim enjoys athletics 
and became one of the best fieldball goalies in 
the Brigade and played Rugby and Baft Football

worked so hard it got him the company first set

From the sunny climate of North Carolina Roy

therefore his life was made fairly difficult by his 
occasional presence on the Sub Squad Once 
he learned to stay oft the Squad he quickly 
found his place at Navy. With a firm grasp on the 
channel selector he settled in for the duration of 
his education and quickly became known as 
"Capt. Kirk of the Wardroom Enterprise," Even 
though Roy thought that the only thing on earth 
was chemistry he was finally persuaded to 
accept the Admiral's invitation to a career of 
chasing dolphins. 


"The Fair Grapefruit" worked hard at what- 
ever he did, whether it be academics, baft cross-

brain cells and watching the room go around in

that he set a new midshipman rack record. Gra-

electric blanket, TV and black lights all nnake Ed 
a Jive turkey. Numerous social activities earn him 
the name "Eddie Marshall" (Chapel Choir, Pres- 
ident of Glee Club, football manager, hop com- 
mittee president . . .). Impressed with cool, 
Eddie does such things as join the Playboy 
Club, drive a vette, spoon plebes, spoon plebes, 
and spoon plebes. Being a stud boxer earned 
Ed many dates with "Rosie." Eddie is also 
known for being the company magician, con- 
stantly juggling balls and making things disap- 
pear Eddie's plans for the future include a pink 
Eldorado, with white walls and a bevy of girls 
calling him "Sugar Daddy." 


A hard core Easterner, Bib Bill came to 
Annapolis from Somerville, New Jersey Always 
to be remembered for his practical jokes and 
love of Academy life He will go to Pensacola 
after graduation. On weekends he will party, 
doing shots and "Blue Angels" with the best. 
His taste in cars (Apollo 1 2) got him many good 
times with "Rosie." Along with the above cre- 
dentials, Bill IS the company champion, holding 
the record with 23 out of 26 hours asleep in the 
rack. With this kind of ambition he should go far 
in the Navy 


"Junebug" left his Pleasant Hill, California 
paradise to join "America's Best" at Boat 
School. Unlike his struggling classmates during 
PEP workouts, Carl proved he was indeed a 
"super" by routinely doing pull-ups with a 35 lb. 
weight Standing in the top of his class, as well 
as his pre-med major, he also takes top honors 
for his Elton John collection, one-night Japa- 
nese rum consumption, and most swimsuits lost 
at Navy. Carl also gained recognition for owning 
the company's most powerful amplifier and least 
powerful car, a Superbeetle. Boasting a 3.9 and 
having promised not to name his first born 
daughter April Mae, the future doctor sets his 
sails, upon graduation, for Baylor College of 
Medicine, where surely another chapter in the 
"Legend of Carl June" will be written. 


A quiet, well-mannered conservative Philipino 
"Junkie." Ping's foreign approach to the Naval 
Academy made his stay here quite nice. His 
training prior to his arrival, made it possible for 
him to validate such professional goodies as 
weapons and the Junior Naval officer He was 
most noted for his sly leadership in every area 
except women. He could normally be found in 
one of several places — on the phone calling 
Canada (strong chance), studying (little to no 
chance) or in the rack (most likely) Even 
through all of this he never neglected "Rosy" in 
moments of stress. His presence will long be 
remembered in Ricketts Hall. 


Jim hails from Chicago, and to this day won- 
ders what drove him to attend the Academy 
Although an extremely hard worker, Jim could 
always be found messing around till midnight, 
when his study hour began, sometimes. Jim is 
up on the music scene, digs on glitter music, 
and thinks Jefferson Starship is the most. His 
mates will always remember him for photo fun- 
nies, practical jokes, National Lampoon, rock 
concerts, and his serious,approach to just about 
everything "Rosie," and" his vette have played 
an important role in Jim's success, and both will 
follow him to San Diego where shipdriving is the 
thing. Nobody can ever say Jim wasn't bold as 
love, for he asked the Axis. 


Wolfman, out of San Francisco, via Bain- 
bridge, wasn't the typical midshipman. How

Rich. However, back in Bancroft, the Company 
romantic spent his time reading books (if they 
didn't contain equations) and writing. Everyone 
had a standing invitation to read his latest prose. 
Rich took a lot of kidding about his hairy chest 
. . . shoulders . legs . . arms ... He looks 
like he's permanently dressed in WUB 'A ' Rich 
spent four years in love — the girls changed 
now and then, but he loved them all. We know 
Rich can handle anything the Navy offers: after 
all, he lived with Buzz.

"Lubes" came from Lake City, Fla. disguised 
as Gomer Pyle, without a nametag. Though 
never a great drinker, Bill captured the world's 
record for most chicken eaten by a midshipman, 
and no one will ever forget the night he polished 
off twelve cannonballs. The years at the Acad- 
emy saw several firsts for Bill: among them was 
the first date (Thelma) and the first time sick 
while drinking (Silver Slipper), He will be remem- 
bered for things like a 1 0-day stint in the hospital 
from the 0-course, the Lake City Reporter, Sha- 
na-na, orchids and a '65 Impala, Bill came to the 
Academy an academic marvel and a physical 
negat. His progress can be measured from sub 
squad to a B in PE and those stars that eluded 
him so long. Bill, a slave to the coffee bean, will 
be rewarded by graduating with 38 and is 
unchallenged as the company slash. If he can 
escape the clutches of Nuc Power, he plans to 
goCECbywayof IGEP. 


Leaving the sunny land of Sunnyvale, Califor- 
nia, Dane ventured eastward to the shores of the 
Severn to become one of America's finest at 
Canoe U. Dane's main reason for coming was 
that it fit in perfectly with his lifestyle of cars, 
pretty girls, and sunshine. He soon found out 
that Navy would be holding back on the first two 
for awhile though. They did, however, give him 
many opportunities to get sunshine (usually at 
the "voluntary" extra duty periods). Undaunted, 
however, Dane persevered and rose to the posi- 
tion of Company sub-commander, gougemas- 
ter, and resident barber of 2nd wing. Dane has 
narrowed his post graduation ambitions down to 
three choices; 1) wandering minstrel and 
recorder player, 2) professional mattress tester, 
3) Navy pilot. Navy has narrowed it down even 
further. Oh well, success will surely follow the 
man with the number 1 smile and the form 2 


Dave blew in on a cold wind from Minnesota 
and has drifted around ever since. While here he 
has managed to keep busy, first with plebe 
wrestling, then wrestling with a certain redhead. 
(What's her name again, Dave'') Never a lover of 
loud music or noise, many people will remember 
him by his famous cry, "Hey. guys, how about 
keeping it down out here." Academics, though, 
have never been Dave's strong point. Making it 
into the "hallowed Halls" only after two tries and 
a year at Prep school, Dave hit the books only to 
find that they hit back He soon found that the 
tube and the rack were more interesting than 
studying, anyway Unsure of service selection, 
Dave only knows that wherever he goes. Doreas 
will follow.

Although his time was divided among GCA, 
Big Brothers, the swimming team, and a certain 
redhead at the University ot Alabama, the "Fish" 
was always able to squeeze into each week a 
few minutes of study, a quick trip to the Steerage 
and a few hours of the tube. This may not seem 
appropriate for a guy with his heart set on med 
school, but when you have an attraction for 
gouge, the study time required is reduced pro- 
portional to the amount of gouge received. 
(Maybe Texas works on the gouge system also) 
Come June, after four years, it looks as if Doug 
will be exchanging one of his roommates for the 
little redheaded girl. The other roommate will 
hopefully be around for many years. 


War fvlongrelmg Doug Moran came directly to 
the Naval Academy after ripping up the Gridiron 
in Virginia. He hung up his "golden spikes" and 
switched to the intramural program here, tram- 
pling or attempting to trample, anything that 
moved on the Rugby, football and soccer fields. 
His guitar and Rocky Mountain High voice 
guided his escape from many verbal beatings 
when at times errors and "I forgots" were invalid 
excuses. His previous free time was leisurely 
spent thumbing through magazines and news- 
papers hopefully looking for that special deal on 
his long awaited dream car — which did finally 
materialize with an exotic 30 miles to the gallon. 
Doug spent all of his crisp tall weekends rubbing 
two antlers together m hopes of bagging a big- 
ger set but he usually returned with little to show 
except the usual case of candy bars and a mind 
of stories. UDT or Navy Air are his top notch 
service selection hopes He's not as confident 
that "what goes down must come up," but since 
he feels "what goes up must come down" he'll 
probably choose Navy Air. 


Perhaps R. Craig's claim to fame was being 
Batt Supply, Batt Admin, the duty yeoman, and 
an MIR all at the same time. He spent many a 
night at the typewriter with the magic fingers 
(both of them) dancing across the keyboard His 
philosophy toward USNA was basic: (a) Bagging 
it is a first class rate, (b) Wherever there's a will, 
there's a way around it, (c) There exists a 
shadow only where there's an absence of light, 
and (d) If the minimum weren't good enough, it 
wouldn't be the minimum. His activities were 
varied, ranging from student to choir member 
and from mail king (56 letters and 3 chow pack- 
ages on youngster cruise.'^'''?) to part-time ram 
god. He was the un-engineer, and escaped from 
the Med's wires lab as Flugelhorn's sidekick with 
a B. When he leaves in June, he will be one of 
the company's two firsties to have made it 
through USNA without a "Dear John" letter. 
(Sorry about that. Deb; you're going to have to 
share your honored position with Bubbles.) 
June of 75 will probably find the fair strawberry 
going to Pensacola via the chapel.

Relations as a major with hopes of possibly 
becoming a foreign diplomat and later on work- 
ing as a minister Tom has been an inspiration to 
many during his four years here and to all who 
knew him he was truly a great friend. His favorite 
words of inspiration are quoted from 
Psalm 27:4, "One thing have I desired of the 
Lord, that I will seek after, that I may dwell in the 
house of the Lord all the days of my life, to 
behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in 
his temple "

When Trace left New Orleans for Annapolis 
only to find that it had no Bourbon Street and 
closed down after 1200 p.m., he began to have 
his doubts After plebe year confirmed them, he 
came to the conclusion that it had to get better 
since it couldn't get any worse. He was right 
. . . almost. His grades peaked out at 3 6 but his 
love life started to sizzle out all together. Now, 
however, he lives by his Camaro, his address 
book, and his long weekends. Graduation will 
find him rounding out his Naval Arch, major at

some) majored in marine engineering and 
minored in rack, battalion wrestling, rack, week- 
end taking, rack, football, rack, handball, 
record-taping, rack, and naval law The Kid 
didn't do much dating first class year but it 

wasn't because he didn't try Always a go-get- 
ter, he set high goals for himself, which at 
assorted times included being an audio engi- 
neer, passing NL 451 , being a professional 
human and an officer person, and preparing for 
a career in nuclear power Lonnie possessed no 
aversions to studying, a fact substantiated by his 
3 3 QPR He approached academics with an 
open mind ("Why, engineering is easy — every 
answer you could ever want is right there on

pass all his swimming tests. Coach Higgins still 
says he swam the entire 40-minute test under 
water Despite the fact that he pushed "grape- 
fruit" for the Company rack title, and was never 
caught with a book during the weekend, Feltz 
still pulled down more than one 4.0. He'll do well

Navy's score was good last year against Army 
(57-0) — Dick's was phenomenal. One particu-

color to B.D.'s life. Soon Dick will collect his rub-

James E Burd, known and loved by all as 
"The Burdman," hails from the sparkling city of 
Pittsburgh Jamie's athletic prowess consists of 
a fantastic talent for 12 oz curls, preferably 
"Iron City" brew. A true mill-honky at heart, 
James was never caught without his never end- 
ing wardrobe of overalls. Always bizarre and the 
life of the party, Jamie was tamed by "no-pants- 
Nance", "queen of the dance" James, who 
once said, "I'll never get married," was later 
heard to acclaim, "Hey guys, I got engaged'" As 
a member of the varsity wardroom team, Jamie

not all work — sometimes he finds time to take

Don will do anything for a laugh — that's why 
he came to Navy, From his auspicious beginning 

— when he saluted a commander in full football 
gear, and the commander returned the courtesy 

— I knew Toad was destined to a 5-year career 
of exemplary service and moral courage 
(upholding the traditions of the fishcake he is). 
Retiring from his position as roast ("most'"') 
rump on the meat squad, the Dumple has dedi- 
cated himself to becoming lewd, mean, and 
obscene. Fanatical by nature, Don's pastimes 
have become dieting, exercising, and arguing. 
Through the years, he has kept us smiling at 
adversity — as our only source of sanity. He'll 
be sorely missed. Toad's future is in Grape-Nuts 
and Marine Air. 


When Charlie arrived from Long Island, he 
was determined to make many new friends He 
started out by learning the names of his contem- 
poraries in the company in record breaking time, 
about the middle of Youngster year Particularly 
active in company soccer and lightweight foot- 
ball, Grover was nevertheless no stranger to 
academics and many late hours with a book. 
Keeping his priorities straight, however, he was 
never one to remain needlessly at fVlother B dur- 
ing liberty. Charlie is looking forward to a career 
in Naval Intelligence following a short pleasure 
cruise as a guest of the surface navy. 


D.A 's arrival here was the culmination of his 
boyhood dreams. After 4 years of disillusion- 
ment and OA he is just about ready for the real 
world. A true student-athlete, he has logged in 
some serious rack time while displaying tremen- 
dous physical ability on the 12 oz. curls. A vet- 
eran of 12 intramural campaigns with B-Ball as 
his forte, he takes the ball to the hole with 
authority. But his party time has been severely 
curtailed this year by his GAG, who occupies 
most, (all) of his weekends 1 /c year, because 
firsties get more libs than youngsters. 


Although he is extremely active during the 
summer, when the leaves begin to turn brown 
and the books start dragging his spirit down his 
eyelids grow heavy and Kell turns to the rack for 
the spiritual enricfiment he finds there. Coming 
to the Academy from Rome, Georgia, Bill 
brought Loretta to pursue the happiness and 
peace of the open road. With a record of 
extreme success in everything from wearing out 
two popcorn poppers in one year and chair 
numlier two in a two man barber shop to per- 
fecting the art of hibernation, one can only 
guess at what he will do to Navy Air. 


When Dave reported to USNA from Bethle- 
hem, Pa., he had to his credit several wrestling 
titles and a beat-up, two-tone International 

"Hamms" no longer wrestles Navy foes; he 
prefers female friends — loves to take 'em to the 

Academically, "Sledge" has worked hard but 
come weekends, he's either in the field hunting 
and fishing, or on libs . . . hunting. Through it 
all, his Super Scout has remained faithful; it gets 
him through the bush — or to it — by making 
the paths of the wilds — or the sidewalks of DC 
— conquerable. Navy has only managed to 
increase his expertise at juggling hot items and 
burning the candle at both ends. With one FBM 
patrol behind him, "Boomer" looks to 5 more 
years of getting Rick-ed Over. 


John came to us from the cornfields of Rock 
Island, Illinois, where he spent most of his early 
life roving over the nation's heartland. Here at 
Navy, he quickly adjusted to military life, as was 
evidenced by his capacity to attract work. 
John's good nature is readily apparent; as he 
has attracted a very sweet wife (yes John, we 
know you're hooked) for the past two years. 
Surface Line (preferably Nuclear Power) looks 
to claim John as a fine officer.

Don Law changed his roost from the famous 
Corn Palace of Mitchell, S D to USNA in the 
summer of 71 Since then "DOC" has managed 
to keep his friends entertained by his rare and 
electrifying performances, one of which con- 
sisted of the big prize in diving in New London, 
He IS the recipient of a black N — needless to 
say. He is always good to have around when 
cars get stuck and makes an excellent navigator 
on 'borrowed' tractors Don leaves behind 5,000 
feet of used dental floss, 40 lbs of sunflower 
seed shells. 2 blown speakers, a set of braces 
and his motto, "there isn't any place gouge 
can't be found " 

For Service Selection DOC hopes to get his

Lil scurried into the academy as a lad under 
Hops and Gil and has since upheld their fine tra- 
dition. Last to speak and first to be heard: Mike's 
wit has pierced the dark years of Spuds', the 
beod', and 'jobber ' His mannerisms fall 
smoothly into place among those things dear to 
him, a good book, a nice wine, and Clancy's. 
Mike chose a difficult major and compares his 
grade point average and study habits to a sinu- 
soidal curve But how can you expect him to 
study in the library when there are no beds'? 
Ernie has always been helpful to his buds — 
whether in the academics or after hours just 
past the seven mile limit. Mike heads for better 
things in fossil fuel He leaves behind his comb, 
pomegranate, and four wisdom teeth' 


Few people would deny that it takes true dedi- 
cation to forsake New Orleans and its French 
Quarter Streets for Annapolis and its Maryland 
Avenues, yet Mike did exactly that when he 
reported to USNA during that long hot summer 
of seventy-one Mike always did well in academ- 
ics and excelled in his chosen field of history, 
yet his true love was sports His enthusiasm in 
competition was contagious and his knowledge 
of any sports topic unbelievable Not satisfied 
with just playing on championship intramural 
teams, Mike coached company softball and bas- 
ketball teams to undefeated regular season 
records in successive seasons Of course there 
were downs as well as ups for Mike, but never 
anything so major that another date, or perhaps 
another day. couldn't handle The indefatigable 
spirit which has served Mike so well at the Acad- 
emy will undoubtedly carry him over anything 
the Marine Air program can offer, as long as 
they never forget that "the name's Michael."

CHRIS McCarthy 

He left Long Island and arrived at USNA in 
June of 71. While at the Academy he distin- 
guished himself in two areas, financial manage- 
ment and academic prowess. In the financial 
department he usually managed to have 
December's pay check spent by September first. 
In academics he lived by the motto, "if the mini- 
mum wasn't good enough, it wouldn't be the 
minimum," Chris always skated on thin aca- 
demic ice but always managed to wade the aca- 
demic board by some miracle. 

Aside from these two areas he will probably 
be most remembered for his "midnight ride" in 
the cemetery and for his ability to find a way to 
get by if there was a way to be found 

Service Selection will find Chris driving ships 
but his true love will always be driving tractors. 


B. J., Ill, straight from the coal mines of West 
Virginia, wanted to escape all those hippi freaks, 
decided to don the ears of Mickey Moose. 
"Bar," born with a bright red neck, is known for 
his tremendous ability to down 1 5 pitchers with- 
out straining the kidneys. B. J. has the distinct 
honor in this company of, being the only one 
with a used $700 engagement ring (worth at 
least $1,500, a deal), the only one with a used, 
just off the lot, TR6 (another deal), and being the 
world champion pencil thrower. We all here at 
the ranch hope B J fares well when he gets up 
agin those NUC Power jocks. He will always be 
remembered for his heuristic insight that pro- 
duced his favorite saying, "This '?@Z#!! place 
IS amazing." 


Bruce rolled in from the great state of Kansas 
in '71 and shortly thereafter destroyed every 
academic validation test the academy could 
muster. In his first week he completed plebe 
academics and moved on to help the struggling 
upperclass survive their academic routine. First 
class year found him with his head in the clouds 
(working on his Trident project of course) With 
little challenge from the academic world, Bruce 
took up fencing and battled for Navy for three 
years before trading his sword in on a car. Admi- 
ral Rickover will be lucky to have Bruce in his 
program and we hope Nuc School will give him 
at least a little bit of a challenge.

Four years out of California, Wink was 
afforded the opportunity to debark with the New

Lynn, one of Marion, Illinois' finest and a small 
town boy all the way, was a monumental chal- 
lenge to USNA It took four long years to com- 
plete the metamorphosis and, Voila! Ensign 
Lynn, small town man. Never one to waste time, 
Oyst quickly made known his great taste in 
clothes and total lack of ethics. As a charter 
member of the company Black "N" Club, he 
found plenty of time to study between restriction 
musters and plenty of time to talk between taps 
and reveille. Too bad he was usually asleep, 
June week will bring Lynn to the altar, although 
no one is sure just who the blushing bride will 
be. At last count Connie (another of Marion's 
finest) and his custom van (one of Dodge's fin- 
est) were running neck and neck. No one knows 
just what the future will bring but Navy Air is a 
good bet for five years of Lynn's time 


Washing the salt from his hair and the sand 
from his skin, Dave stepped from the beaches of 
San Diego to the deserts of Annapolis early in 
the summer of seventy-one Jettisoning an engi-

Schenz decided at the ripe old age of 22 that 
Milwaukee, Schlitz, and the Pack were not all 
this world has to offer. So, in an attempt to see 
the world, Bill joined the Navy angJ ended up at 
Disneyworld, USA. After three tough years of 
sleeping, eating, and sometimes swimming, 
Schenz decided to change his image so he 
changed his name from W to W. P., brought his 
"woman" to Annapolis, and had three opera- 
tions on his face — what some people won't do 
for a Kirk Douglas look. A special thanks from 
his roommate for making this zop a little more 
livable May you be forever blessed with strong 
wings and a cold drink. 


In the summer of '71, "Buffalo" Chip was 
forced to leave his Stetson, boots, and spurs in 
Corpus Christi, Texas, in exchange for four fun- 
filled years at USNA. Plebe Year he was candidly

ory of maximum gain for minimum effort." Being 
a fairly successful advocate of this doctrine, 
Chip failed in some areas: SCUBA, Hop Commit-

of his two Porsches or joy-riding a pretty lass

Huntington, New York's gift to Surface Line, 
Dave has shown us that this Naval Officer is also 
a hard-working gentleman with a classic touch. 
Dave has been pursuing the elusive 4 these 
pas^ few years. That is not to say he is the all

drive the watch squad nuts with Bach, Handel,

John, hailing from a nebulous town in Penn- 
sylvania, began his tour at USNA by becoming 
the first man in his class to become NPQ shortly 
after his arrival. Although plagued with this mis- 
fortune, John quickly rose to the heights of suc- 
cess by being recognized as the foremost expert 
in ordnance and is locally recognized as the 
company computer jock. He's famous for know- 
ing the value of a dollar by being the only mem- 
ber of his class to own a used car Even if it is a 
"Mercedes Benz" Taking into consideiation his

not until first class year was Steve able to find 
peace and quiet as an out of company striper 
away from "give me a hair cut" and "where's 
the popcorn" Having done quite well in all 
phases of Academy life (even to post a perfect 
record as football coach "of a Baft team, 0-5), 
Stan plans on finding out if Submariners really 
do It deeper. We all wish them (Steve and Jean)

Kevin E Wallace, affectionately known as 
"Kiwi" has hailed from many places His love for 
wanderlust is probably the only excuse we can 
figure for Kiwi's choice to go down to the sea. 
His first impressions of the Naval Academy were 
marred by hours of ED., but now he's made 
amends and is chalking up hours of tin-tipping 
— as long as he isn't tied down by one of his 
many brunettes. With qualifications that include 
an ever-smiling face, a flawless bank account, 
and lifetime membership In the "Partius Maxi- 
mus club," Kevin should have it easy as a Navy 
NFO — as long as the guy In the front seat 
knows where he's going.

Coming out of high school to USNA, Mark 
was an achieving young man Although Plebe 
year was tough, he put in his every effort to 
shine. In these four short years he has majored 
in Oceanography maintaining a high QPR, He 
has won the coveted N" in baseball as a pitcher. 
He has won the T-$hirt ripping contest. In fact, 
he has worked hard to be best in everything, 
even golf in which he has done very well There 
is only one more thing to exceed in, and he will

Steve, colloquially known as "Cool Butts," is 
a product of a red-neck little town, Sharpsville, 
Indiana He brought some interesting views to 
the Academy, not unlike his background. While 
his forte was not academics, he had unmitigated 
stamina for studying, many a time keeping his 
roommate awake until the early morning hours. 
"Cool" was infamously known from Indiana to 
Florida as a heartbreaker of young women; but 
as first class year rolled around he had settled 
down to just two loves: Sharon and his big yel- 
low "truck." If "Butts" hfeeds his fates (i.e. he 
stays away from l\/lary Washington College and 
doesn't overindulge in "gasoline") his success 
will be unmeasurable.

because of the "Academic Warnings" printed 
on his inter-semester grade reports But he

towards anyone who teases him of it. Known to 
have set Academy records for both hours log- 
ged in the rack sleeping and hours logged in the

Born an lllinoisan he is a strong lllini and Chi-

and perseverance have steadied him well for his

Lambo. hailing from Wilmington, Delaware, 
has proven to be a little short on physical stat- 
ure, but not much else. As a result of his belt 
buckle view of the world, Mark came to be 
known as "The Sandblower." Lambo is known 
for several things, among which are his capta- 
incy of the gym team, a keen wit, his taking of 
"special libs" and a rare compassion for all. 
Always adhering to the low profile concept, 
Lambo could go unnoticed for weeks at a time 
The biggest moment of Mark's career at the

Hailing from the Windy City, Muffman left 
many a young girl with a tear in her eye when he 
came to Disneyland on the Severn. His first three 
years here were devoted to books and football; 
mostly the latter as can be seen by his QPR. Will 
was an easy person to find if you needed him. If 
he wasn't in the rack in the afternoon he was at 
WRNV If he wasn't in the rack in the morning he 
was out practicing the rifle manual from 530 to

Don came to the Naval Academy from Virginia 
Beach, Va. straight out of high school with only 
one nickname — "Butch." Quickly, however, 
"Butch" came to be known by a variety of nick- 
names including "Head", "Narl", "Schlong", 
"Schlonger", "Schlonghead", and "Toad," 

While at the Academy, "Head" majored in 
Marine Engineering and attained better than a 
3.0 average. His sporting interest was always in 
contact sports such as football, fieldbali, and 
Lacrosse — no volleyball for this "Narl." 

Well liked by his classmates, "Head" will be 
missed after graduation when he goes to Pensa-

'Pete' came to the boat school from two well 
qualified backgrounds. First he was a California 
boy, and second he came straight from three 
tough years at the l\/larine Military Academy in 
Harlingen, Texas, which left him well prepared 
for the rigors of Plebe year. 

Pete had an easy time Plebe year as he soon 
learned to master the system and take advan- 
tage of his exceptional good luck which followed 
him everywhere, whether in the hall, or on the 
Severn stroking a crew shell, or at an away foot- 
ball game in Atlanta. 

'Ortz's' luck seemed to falter 2,'C year when 
he won a Black 'N' two times in a six month 
period. But his good naturedness and easy 
going personality saved him from the monotony 
of being locked in 'Mother B' for 60 days and 
almost as many nights However, when it 
appeared to many that his good luck was all 
gone, Pete proved them all wrong by finding 
Cathy at a Sunday afternoon mixer 

A candidate for the Marine Corps since the 
day he set toot in Annapolis, "Tuna" certainly 
has a fantastic and exciting career to look for- 
ward to and a wonderful girl to share it with. 


Les came to Annapolis by way of Southern 
Maryland. Being the self-proclaimed and often- 
proved Gnarl that he is, he has had little trouble 
sliding through his four years, doing just what 
had to be done. His loose manner and "don't 
panic" attitude have proved that life, in general, 
is really not a "bitch" after all. A gifted athlete, 
Les could be found on a different intramural 
team each season. Leave periods usually found

Even though "Fast Eddie" came from Louis- 
ville, Kentucky, we liked him enough to allow 
him to be our first company commander. A solid 
Corps man from Day One. He was one of those 
Engineering majors who some day wants to be a 
lawyer. His memories of this place will include 
Civil War battles during the summer, fights with 
the Plebes during Pep-Rallies and attempts at 
boxing and crew. But the rest of us will always 
remember him as a young man dedicated to 
truth and justice, and just being himself 




Lyn, better known as "Whit" or "Blimpie" 
came to the UNcollege from Staunton Military 
Academy His actual place of residence is now 
being decided by the states of Tenn and N.J. 
Being a Plebe Jock Whit became one of the 
three infamous HOGMEN of '75. If there was a 
critical factor to help him choose his major 
(General Engineering) it was fifteen semester 
hours his Youngster year The only N he 
earned was a black one from the St Valentine 
Day's Massacre USNA style Only two troubles 
were ever encountered by Whit. One was being 
mistaken for his roommate when they weren't 
together, (The duo known as the Golddust 
Twins, Dynamic Duo, Bubsie Twins, etc.) and 
two JEANS DUNGAREES One still wonders if 
Whit will ever be able to wear civilian clothes, A 
real fun loving guy with a good nature he split 
his time hunting gouge and racking. Navy air will 
get a fine officer if they find a plane big enough 
for him and his Corvette 

Ed. better known as Zap hails to us from the 
"Polish Iron Men" of Don-Bosco High School in 
New Jersey. Zap came to Navy to play football 
however, after 2 years. 3 two-a-days, and 1 tooth 
later he decided to become a Navy Officer might be 
easier This however didn't change his jack attitude, 
so his classmates ray in those character builders 
called 54-alphas Speaking of character builders. 
Zap has the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre includ- 
ing a Black "N" Star, and 21 hours, to show how 
character is really formed here at Navy, but that 
was standard in those knicker years in Bite the Bul- 
let Nick D's cpmpany Of course it s not all work 
here at Navy Zap found the real meaning of Army- 
Navy weekend Youngster year, now there's more in 
Philly than meets the eye Then there was his alco- 
holic indoctrinations during second class summer 
and of course we wouldn't want to forget all that 
rack-time, those hard" nights at Ho Jos and an 
overwhelming love for Emmersons Soon after 2 c 
year began he ordered his Corvette and its been all 
down hill since He finally came into his own 1 c 
year, car, O'Club, and duty, and lots of Gravey 
(those EGE majors never did have it very hard) 
This could last forever but I think if there's one 
statement that could describe his way of living its 
"If the minimum wasn't good enough, it wouldn't be 
the minimum " 

"It IS not the critic who counts," wrote Theo- 
dore Roosevelt, "not the man who points out 
how the strong man stumbled or where the doer 
of deeds could have done them better The 
credit belongs to the man who is actually m the 
arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat 
and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and 
comes short again and again, who knows the 
great enthusiasms, the great devotions and 
spends himself in a worthy cause, who, at the 
best, knows the triumph of high achievement: 
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails 
while daring greatly, so that his place shall never 
be with those cold and timid souls who know 
neither victory nor defeat ""

surviving a rigorous and uneventful Plebe and 
Youngster year, he became the roommate of the

Waging a four year struggle to get the best 
from himself, Don left Hawaiian waters to look 
for that something more at USNA He hung up 
his bathing suit at the end of Plebe year to spend 
extra time in his search for the Orient and 
branch into new and untried things After a 
diverging path Youngster year, Don settled back 
to take from the Academy all he could and leave 
his sometimes unorthodox ways as his mark. A 
hard worker and persistent in both his studies 
and athletics, Don has prided himself in working 
to his full potential and should do well in the 
years to come. 


Jim has gained many a pet name in his USNA 
career. Sugar Bear. Polar Bear, Rodger the

throwing them over for his beloved Ivliami Dol-

seen, however, frequenting the area's various 
music concerts Seriously, Jim's math major has 
found him forever in search of Epsilons and Del-

Chuck (Choo-choo) came to USNA from Fay-

apt at "bull" than slide rules or steam tables. 
Chuck chose History for a major. He spent most

ing girls, and trying to convince people that the 
south did not really lose the "War of Northern 
Aggression," Although, unsuccessful at this last 
endeavor, he did prove that it is possible to grad- 
uate from Canoe U without being fried. A true 
believer in the saying; you rate what you get 
away with. Bad eyes ended hopes of being a

ants, A quickly compiled list of these nicknames 
would include such descriptive clauses as 
"Space Cadet", "Morroio Mole", "Brad", and a 
more recent, 'Dr. Hugh-mele " By working dili- 
gently at his studies between periods of pro- 
longed rack and overcoming any damaging side 
effects of "tube" originatfed radiation poisoning, 
Bernie has successfully completed the staunch 
requirements for parchment day. Someday soon 
he may be seen leading fearlessly, little green

Upon receiving a presidential appointment to 
the "Boat School," while at Zama Amencan 
High School in Nippon, Dan the "Morman," was 
compelled to the field of Oceanography, but still 
he kept his interests in aviation having not 
received a much-desired appointment to 
USAFA. After a year with Becky and a few cas- 
ual "brown-noses" from George and Tom, Dan 
found the time to develop his vocal talent 
through his active role with the Glee Club and to 
pursue his design aspirations with the IVIasquer- 
aders. Although he usually "flunked" the 
Applied Strength, he did make a good pitcher of 
"gleep," win an occasional game of "Lo Man," 
and he often indulged in avid listening to his 
roommate's harmonious singing. Probably most 
noted as the "Continental Breakfaster" (alias 
"CB "), Dan is a dedicated Naval Aviator and 
hopes to become based in the "only state with 
great, sunny beaches," California.

After careful consideration, he decided to leave

glad to see the Battalion placed in such compe-

Charlie had many things going for him when

way through Plebe year. 

It was easy to find Charlie on the weekends 
waging one of the battles of the past in full force

any ship Mike sails on will be 4.0 all the way. 


Nyles, alias, "01 Sweater Chest," came to 
USNA from the ski slopes of Utah. Always a hard 
worker, Nyles is one of the few midshipmen that 
went with the triple major program He was an 
active member of the Rallee Brothers and was 
also one of the infamous B-Men. Nyles' favorite 
haunt was Nimitz Library, where he found that 
the good study atmosphere helped prepare him 
for the next day And even though his concen- 
tration was keen, he always managed to wake 
up in time to get back for taps 

Perhaps Nyles can best be described by his 
own favorite expression, "Burly'" And burly is 
what Nyles will be in anything he chooses to do

Bob Davis, who is better known around thei 
hallowed halls of Bancroft as "The Mormon," 
began his illustrious career here on the shores 
of sunny Annapolis as a skinny, little kid from 
Arlington, Virginia. Now after 4 years at USNA 
Bob is still a skinny, little kid, who has had the 
pnvilege to live with such great roommates as 
"Hicks", "Gabe's", "Jesse", and now 
"Regan " Because of these roommates and the 
fact that Bob rarely ever studies, he has man- 
aged to pull above a 3.00 every semester. Stellar 
in sports, Bob has managed to amaze all his 
classmates with his great hands in football, blaz- 
ing serve in tennis, and his hard head in soccer. 
His love of water, women and song has Bob 
eager to launch his career as a pari of the Navy 
team that claims to do it deeper, the Nuclear 
Bubbleheads With a guitar on his back. Bob 
heads for what should prove to be a very suc- 
cessful career 


"Di ' came to Navy from NAPS with his twin 
brother, Brian. A 1970 graduate of W. T. Wood- 
son High School, Di broke the hearts of many 
young lovelies when he left to follow in the foot- 
steps of his oldest brother. Sieve, a Naval Acad- 
emy grad of 71 . Di quickly developed a sincere 
affinity for the rack and a severe disliking to any 
hours spent awake. This lasted until his true 
loves entered his life, free clothes at Peerless 
and a not so free TR-6. He soon became known 
as the original rally brother and the instigator of 
the "Annapolis 500 Club." Our rally brother, Di, 
will leave Annapolis with a B.S. in physical sci- 
ence, a TR-6. an out of date address book and a 
problem of how to put a thousand dollars in 
stereo equipment into an F-1 4. 


Pat came to Annapolis from Albuquerque, 
N M , the most recent of his many homes as an 
Air-Force junior A standout high school runner, 
he made the Plebe Cross Country team, and 
more importantly, T-Tables. His quiet, easy- 
going personality, coupled with his unique abil- 
ity to see beyond most "Navy good deals" soon 
established him as a stable element in the Com- 
pany When not racking (nearly all the time) Pat 
could usually be found either running yard loops 
or reading through old Logs at the library. Pat 
was a man of simple pleasures — the Allman 
Brothers Band, his Spitfire and leave of any kind 
Pat's determination, intelligence, and quiet lead- 
ership will surely spell success in his career in 
the Nuclear Navy. 


"Big Al" comes to us from the Navy town of 
Charleston, S C. where he spent a year at 
Charleston College tantalizing the girls with his 
blonde hair and Pepsodent smile before 
embarking on his four-year tenure at USNA. A 
diligent student, as most ocean engineering 
majors are. Big Al could be frequently seen 
burning the midnight oil and consuming reams 
of engineering paper and was even known to 
spend a Saturday night or two in the hall wres- 
tling with a tough problem. Despite the heavy 
academics Al still found "Mo," a cute little bru- 
nette from Cleveland, Ohio, who has since laid 
claim to Big Al's athletic body Al manages to 
pass the time between visits to Cleveland by 
starring on the Company basketball team which 
he helped along to a 21 -1 record and a Brigade 
Championship in the past two years. He also 
loves football, tennis, swimming. Mustangs and 
Navy Air. Big Al walked through Gate One four 
years ago with NFO stamped on his forehead, 
and after threatening once or twice to become a 
"Squid," has decided that Pensacola is a nice 
town even for a married man. I am certain that 
the Air Community will welcome this profes- 
sional young man into their ranks.

Jim Gabor, otherwise known as "Gabes" 
came to Annapolis out of the smog of Cleveland, 
Ohio with a Browns' pennant m one hand and 
an Indians' pennant in the other. After a rough 
Plebe year with "Hick" and "Monkey," he 
decided to trade his pennants for a mug of cof- 
fee and an Italian book, as he chose Foreign 
Affairs as a major Fortunately for his classmates 
he did not instill the Indians' winning ways In the 
Company Basketball team, of which he was 
manager his junior year and coach his senior 
year They managed a 21-1 record for those two 
years in spite of him. After graduation he first 
signs his life away to Debbie, and then to Navy 
Air, either way he'll be up' Never known as one 
to drink anyone under the table, Gabes made 
remarkable strides in that area during his last 
three years at USNA Jim will surely live up to the 
motto of Pensacola, "Navy Pilots do it better." 


John, an Air Force junior, can honestly call 
almost any place on the East Coast his home. In 
many instances, his hometown depends upon 
which young lady he is trying to impress with his 
deadly charm. In the academic world at Navy, 
John has surprised many people with his lack- 
luster approach but impressive grades Sporty 
cars, stereo equipment, and women seem to 
consume much of his time when he is not show- 
ing his prowess on the athletic field During his 
brief four year "Pit Stop" at Navy, John has 
earned both a varsity "N" in crew and a black 
"N" for conduct With his amiable demeanor 
and quick wit, John will be a welcome addition 
to any squadron, upon completion of flight train- 


Phil, hailing from Haddonfield, New Jersey, 
never seemed to wqrry about anything, be it a 
last minute term paper or a watch squad inspec- 
tion Although he was quite a )OCk in High 
School, Phil left the glory of the baseball field to 
become a star in company sports. A veteran of 
many night sorties to DC, the Academy finally, 
caught up with him as he picked up his black 
"N" the first week of first class year. A firm 
believer in academic excellence, Phil it is 
rumored never knew where the library was. He 
seemed to place more emphasis on the gouge 
Phil's easy-going manner and good sense of 
humor will stand him in good stead after gradua- 
tion and in his career following Pensacola. 


From the steel country of Western Pennsylva- 
nia where he was a standout swmmer for Butler 
High School, 'Nert came to Navy, only to find his 
name misspelled. If it weren't for his uncanny 
resemblance to a certain classmate from Alaska, 
Jon might have had a reasonably trouble-free 
plebe year. Sports were always Jon's forte, and 
he easily made the Plebe Fencing team, later 
settling down to Batt Swimming, Company Soft- 
ball and Fieldball where he starred. After 2/c 
year began, Jon could often be seen with a 
'boro and a cup of coffee, pulling late nighters 
studying and wondering what life was like at 
Penn. Never one to refuse a drink or an invita- 
tion to good times, Jon's weekends were always 
colorful and almost religiously non-academic. 
Jon's easy-going, likable personality and his 
Ricky Ricardo laugh made life at USNA a little 
easier for his classmates 'Nert made his banes 
early as a charter member of the Friday Night 
Club, continuing suit with the establishing of the 
B-Hive. Jon's plans for the immediate future 
involve nuclear power After that, be it Navy or 
civilian line, with his personality, good looks, 
"receding hairline" and quick wit he is bound to 
be a success. 




Mark wandered into Navy during the summer 
of 71 from a small town on the Delaware River. 
A versatile athlete, "Andretti" drifted from bench 
to bench, before finally winning his letter on the 
Annapolis raceways Harps dominated Navy 
academics, but saw his stars and stnpes dim- 
med by an unsuccessful getaway first class 
year Undaunted by Deke, fvlark can still mow a 
heavy six-pack down with the buddies on any 
weekend. His goals for Nuc Power are only outs- 
hown by aspirations of a long and illustrious 
career in the Navy. 

Ken left the sheltered and secure life of the 
Baltimore suburbs for the comforting arms of 
"Mother B." In the academic arena he quickly 
dazzled the Profs, and his classmates with his 
uncanny ability to get max results from minimum 
effort, a difficult feat for a Mechanical Engineer- 
ing major Never one to let his schoolwork get in 
the way of his education. Ken could always be 
found negotiating the distance between Balti- 
more and Annapolis on the weekends. Injuries 
put an end to Ken's hopes of playing Varsity 
Soccer for Navy after three years of struggle 
Not satisfied with four years of commuting at 
Navy, Ken plans to anchor at Bainbridge after 
graduation, with hopes of wearing Submariner's 
Dolphins someday. He should prove to be a val- 
uable asset to Admiral Rickover's clan. 

Randy found his way to Annapolis from the 
plains of South Dakota, a feat, considering that 
in October of Plebe year his sense of geography 
swore that the Hawaiian Islands were in the mid- 
dle of the Atlantic Ocean Nevertheless, he 
arrived on time, carrying with him an impressive 
collection of "sweethearts" in his wallet, a deter- 
mination to be an engineer in his head, and a big 
heart in his chest He never lost the heart, and 
despite keeping his roommate awake during 
numerous "all nighters" to graduate an engi- 
neer. Randy does so. Only one thing was denied 
him here — a new and permanent picture for his 
blotter. Maybe the CEO could find one for him.

Being an ex-mountain boy from North Caro- 
lina did not seem to bottier Mike Lingerfelt in his 
drive to graduate from USNA Unable to find a 
free and lasting relationship with a member of 
the opposite sex while on vacation here for four 
years, Mike decided to buy himself a girl instead: 
which turned out to be his car, a TR-6, (What a 
lovely couple they make') Memories of Virginia 
Beach, his lust for Vodka sours, and his sincere 
effort to catch those tasty crabs while living it up 
at the beach have kept this boy plugging along 
Mike, who lives and dies with N.C Stale's bas- 
ketball team, has done quite well in sports, A fine 
Batt Tennis player, lightweight football player, 
and a member of the Company Basketball team 
which lost only once in his last two years here, 
have kept him busy and in shape. His decision to 
go to Nuclear Power School has brought new 
hope for Mike His firm belief that he will find a 
pot of gold waiting at the conclusion of his mili- 
tary obligation, has made Mike eager to start, 
what should prove to be, a very short and suc- 
cessful career 


Tom came to make his fortune at Navy from 
the thriving metropolis of Mountain Home, 
Idaho. Here he gained instant fame by setting 
the world record in the "oi' flip the penny off 
your elbow trick." He has achieved many other 
successes with his various other antics, not to 
mention his being a charter member and gen- 
eral manager of the Coffeemates, These activi- 
ties have left little time for such extracurricular 
activities as studying and sleeping None the 
less he has maintained a 4,0 average in the lat- 
ter, Tom has established himself as a very con- 
scientious person and one who is liked and 
admired by all. His easy going personality in 
conjunction with his leadership capabilities will 
ensure his success in and value to the Surface 
Fleet of the Navy.

Jack came to the eighth wonder of the world 
trom York, Pa With his first step inside the gol- 
den gates, he began to express his vast knowl- 
edge of historical events and when the time 
came to choose his academic option, he will- 
ingly became a history major 

Times were rough during the first year but his 
constant struggle with the Board always ended 
in his favor. Since then he has expressed a 
desire to join the Marines and continue the 
search for a few good men Let's hope that in 
the years ahead his searching guides him in the 
right direction 


June of 71 brought this man to the Naval 
Academy via South Boston, Poughkeepsie and 
Essex Junction, Vt Although customer for nosy 
first classmen, Paul made his Plebe year a mem- 
orable one 

Youngster year found Paul in search of the 
simpler pleasures of life forsaking the books, for 
that mysterious something behind his eyelids 
However, the realization that second class year 
brought with, "The Last One Hundred Go 
Corps." brought Paul out of bed and back to the 
books once again, where he proceeded to 
resume his winning ways, with the academic 
department, while his family shifted home base 
from Vienna, Virginia back to his beloved Ver- 

Paul excelled in sports in Company and out A 
four year starter on the Academy's fine hockey 
team, he usually managed more stitches than 
playing time First class year found him as the 
co-captain and also as the Company Sub-Com- 
mander just sitting at his desk processing form- 
2's and studying weapons. June 1975 will find 
Paul a far cry from "The Last Hundred" and on 
his way to Nuclear Power School, His great 
sense of humor, capacity for hard work, and 
genuine interest in people will stand him in good 
stead as the service acquires an outstanding 


Rick, better known as "Duke" by his many 
friends, came to good ole' Crabtown from the 
mountains of West Virginia. A good athlete, he 
left his hillbilly football team short one offensive 
guard. At Navy. Duke also exhibited his athletic 
prowess participating in a variety of intramural 
sports, from fieldball to Brigade boxing. Major- 
ing in Oceanography, but more important, how 
to enjoy liberty, Duke was seldom seen occupy- 
ing the halls on a Saturday night. He was too 
busy looking for a good time or making one. His 
goal IS to earn his gold wings as a Fighter Pilot 
and he'll surely be a great asset to Naval Avia- 
tion. So if you're ever looking for this "Rally- 
Brother." just look for him behind the wheel of 
his long awaited "Grape." a plum colored Jag- 


Forsaking sunny Ukian. California for the 
cloudy clime of Maryland. Dan 'Too Tall" Vilotti 
began a four year recurring battle with the Aca- 
demic Department After two years at Navy, the 
books appeared to have the edge, but they 
didn't figure Dan's drive and determination to 
succeed. A superlative comeback during sec- 
ond class year invokes him as one of the elite 
few who have ventured below the plateau of 2 
and have returned to tell of it This triumph was 
not without its sacrifices: Dan had to abandon a 
varsity basketball career and burn a lot of mid- 
night oil to placate the "Gods of 2 0." Always 
willing to help classmates out or join a party, 
Dan IS well liked and a natural leader The 
Brownshoe Navy will be proud to welcome him 
on board after graduation, and he is sure to 
prove his worth

Originally from Greer, South Carolina, Randy 
will always be known for his keen wit, persistent 
battles with academics, zeal for working out (in 
the rack), and pursuit of the fairer sex. His mam 
academic interest was the study of the Russian 
culture and language . 

"So it is that we are saved by faith in Chnst 
and not by the good things we do." 

— Romans 3:28 

By his faith Randy was known. 



Rick brought a touch of Hawaiian flair with 
him as he became a member of the 
"clubhouse" in the summer of 71 . After surviv- 
ing Plebe year at the weight of 1 59, Rick, later to 
be known as "The Hulk," blossomed to 205 As 
an upperclassman. Rick was to be the comedian 
of our class Many hilarious nights in the young- 
ster wardroom can be attributed to his good 
humor (remember the cream pie in the top 
bunk') And of course, he was the discoverer of 
the "meat-hook " Academically, Rick always 
came through in the clutch Rick will do fine in 
any field of the Navy he selects.

Howling from the backwoods of Belton, 
Texas, Bulldog hit the Naval Academy football 
program where he starred on the Plebe team 
and was selected as Co-Captain of the Varsity 
squad his Senior year. A country boy at heart, 
the Dog had some unique talents which he 
unveiled during Plebe year. Eating muster 
boards and sun glasses was not uncommon for 
the Dog after a few beers. He also proved to be 
one of the best rifle shots in the brigade He 
attributed this talent to the many hours spent on 
his back porch picking off Wetbacks trying to 
cross the Rio Grande, An Electrical Engineer, 
Dog spent more hours rigging gadgets and mak- 
ing plans to shock and scare people than he did 
studying. Never one to hit the books until it was 
too late, he could be found more often than not 
roaming the halls with his roommate and part- 
time trainer planning some sort of mischief, 
John Deere Tractors, Wmdsom Windsor, 
Rhonda, Parties, and Football are his loves, and 
necessarily in that order. Dog's major is gradu- 
ating at which time he will grace the Surface 
Line community with his presence. Sick 'em

All-Popular "Engy," or Baltimore-Mike in bus- 
iness, chose Navy U, because he deduced that 
he could make more investing in a destroyer 
than he could with Harvard's best dorm. So ever 
since he remained our financial advisor, haircut 
and all. Known throughout the brigade for his 
body-building program, his 6', 1 06 lb frame was 
our constant inspiration. But Ivlike cannot be for- 
gotten as a true friend to us all, who always 
stands his ground, and will always be there in 
the pinch We just hope the Supply Corps does 
not get hold of him, he'll invest the defense 
budget m mutual funds and fertilizer companies 
And he will always come out in the black and 
ahead on anyone's chart. 


Dougie was believed to have made his trip 
from Kenai, Alaska to the 'boat school' on a dog 
sled; however, this is not true because his ice 
berg is still double parked at the sea-wall. Never 
has one man been so well liked and equally 
slandered by his friends as Mike He brought his 
quick wit, determination to excel, and if that 
wasn't enough, his lil' woman with him to sustain 
him during his stay at Navy. Mike has been 
through enough roasting by his friends, includ- 
ing his future 'Boss,' Admiral Rickover, to last 
him a lifetime. Majoring in polysci with Chinese 
as a language has awarded Mike many hours of 
many hours, and the opportunity to take more 
for Nuc power, but his good grades reflect his 
efforts, Mike's presence has been felt by all, his 
absence will not bring smiles, and when Mike 
makes it to his first submarine, we will remember 
his immortal words, "Just remember, I'll be out 
there making it all possible!" 


Bill Per, a Chicago suburbanite, came to 
USNA and immediately showed us that "Big Bad 
Leroy Brown" was just a wimp in his book Bill 
spent two years in Track. He had a knack for 
having bad luck here (getting fried for hair while 
going to the barber shop), and he learned to 
escape from reality by visiting his pad 

Bill was never one to let his studies interfere 
with having a good time, but nevertheless did 
well academically. When Bill graduates in June 
he will take himself and his black N to Pensa- 
cola, and I wonder if it'll be the same after that. 


Agnes came to Navy from an "ideal" chicken 
farm in central New York with a year long stop at 
Cortland State There he played sports and had 
little time for his demanding P.E. major. Here he 
found Chemistry (since there's no P.E.) Santa 
Claus Joe, Rocket and Sammy Davis, Jr M did 
their best, but they couldn't keep him from get- 
ting stars every semester. After 2 years as a lax 
jock he turned to intramurals, culminating in a 
career as John Wooden, "Jr Aggie always had 
time for fun, parties, women, and a little brew

"Fos" rolled in as two-hun'dred pounds of 
twisted steel and sex appeal from Ben Franklin 
High in New Orleans, Louisiana Most famous 
for his Jewish marching chants during Plebe 
summer, he was the only one to ever get chop- 
ped liver care packages. The thought that one 
certain Southern Belle, Miss Betty Boop, was 
waiting, launched him into ac year. Earning 
uncountable numbers of N stars as one of 
Heinz's boys, that 2.0 (I mean 4.0) continually 
eluded him. He always took heart in the fact that 
there was one firstie there to say, "Fosberg, get 
your trou altered'" Never one to be accused of 
smiling before 1 1 am, Fos was happiest in the 
theatres of DC, lost in his large personal library 
or in a fine local restaurant Doing a fine job on 
the Plebe detail first set, he breezed through first 
class year in a little red Fiat. Surface Line looks 
mighty fine (even if it is an oiler) As long as he 
keeps his specs on, a successful career in the 
Navy is all his.

Jim's love for the sea is without comparison. If 
he wasn't on summer cruise or sailing on the 
Severn, you could be sure to find him walking by 
the sea wall wishing he were. When he could 
turn his mind from the sea, "Hatchet Hanna" 
made a name for himself on the Soccer and 
football fields Two women also managed to turn 
his head, but they mistakenly thought they could 
find better elsewhere This prompted Jim to the 
motto "You can love them, but don't trust 
them," We know it won't be long until he will 
have command of a destroyer, and maybe even 
his own "Cal 25" 

"They that go down to the sea in ships, that do

"Hokey," the name he won Plebe summer, 
traveled southward, from his peaceful home- 
town of tVlount Holly, New Jersey, to continue 
his studies and military life having been an Air 
Force Brat most of his life. He will long be 
remembered for: his extra long hair, that man- 
aged to fool many officers: his hand stand trips 
to the wardroom, "His Office," during study 
hour: and most of all his carefree view of life witti 
wine, cheese and a sporty green Triumph.

at least 6,234 times in four years. Yet Glenn will 
soon find himself flying the friendly skies, and

Coming from Miami, Florida, Mike never had 
any trouble adjusting to the Academy or aca-

Christ. It IS God's powerful method of bringing

Mike entered the Naval Academy by way of 
Santiago, Chile A veteran of the Chilean Naval 
Academy, plebe summer only moderately chal- 
lenged his seabag of naval knowledge, and he 
quickly began mastering such USNA jargon as 
"carry-on", "rack", and "football" After estab- 
lishing that the men with the striped shirts were 
referees and not prisoners of the revolution, 
Mike quickly became a member of the 3/c, 2/c, 
and 1 /c wardroom system Being one of the few 
genuine soccer players in the company Mike 
could most often be heard yelling "I Cross eet!" 
when not chipping in goals A fine student, Latin 
lover, and good friend, Mike will no doubt serve 
Chile with the same degree of professionalism 
and character he displayed while aboard USNA.

Hailing from the nations capital. Washington, 
DC, Kerwm made it a point, during his 4 years 
at the University of Navy to always find humor in 
every situation Killer, as he became known, was 
so nicknamed, not because he was such a great 
boxer, ex-convict, or, as he thought, a ladies' 
man, but. because his first name was so awk- 
ward and IVIiller rhymed with Killer Killer, using 
his nickname as a reputation was always trying 
to strike terror in many of his classmates, who 
many times could be found chasing him through 
the halls. He applied much of his energies to the 
sport of boxing. After boxing his first year at 
USNA, he turned to, managing, officiating and 
coaching, mainly because he was afraid of get- 
ting his "mug" further messed up in the ring. 
Swimming was another of his athletic abilities 
and he could be found many an afternoon sur- 
veying the bottom of the instruction pool for air 
pockets. Killer's favorite word was "liberty," and 
he could be found every possible opportunity, 
either ankling out into town or leaning against a 
lamp-post on West Street, with hands in pocket, 
toothpick in mouth, whistling the tune, "Shaft," 
Killer leaves us with his motto for success at 
USNA, "Ivlinimum effort, Maximum Grade." 


"Crit" as he came to be called faired from the 
quiet southern town of Petersburg, Virginia 
Academics was not his fort6 but what he lacked 
in this area, he more than made up for by his 
athletic ability Crit will be remembered for his 
Budweiser Beer and his green l\/lustang parked 
behind Halsey Field House, The memory of his 
mighty escapades to Mary Washington College 
during second class year to see his spice of life 
and the next morning running to his rack one 
hour before reveille in order to get some rest 
before his six "N" day will linger in the minds of 
all who witnessed the events, 


Affectionately known to his friends and foes 
alike as Beefo, the Ma arrived at USNA from 
Woodstock, III , knowing full well what he was 
getting into (and he still came''') After pursuing 
Batt football and company fieldball for one sea- 
son, he decided these were much too vigorous 
sports to subject his frail body to and opted for 
the much more sensible position as Varsity 
Lacrosse Manager Never far behind the Sup's 
list, he was always striving for that perfect union: 
the best grade with the minimum effort After los- 
ing "Heifer" and his innocence Second Class 
year, PR found "Fanny" and settled down to 
getting himself together With his fine back- 
ground in Chemistry and his intense desire to 
join the Submarine Service, not to mention his 
obvious leadership qualities, Paul should make 
an excellent addition to the fleet, no matter what 
Admiral Rlckover thinks.

Dutasta was born in St. Augustine, Florida, 
and was found three days later on a secluded 
beach tipping Budweiser tails and petting alliga- 
tors Not much IS known about the early years of 
his life — no one has the courage to tell the 
story All that is known is what I have observed 
during the past three years The man has tre- 
mendous sympathy for animals, and, as a result, 
has roomed with a Dog during his stay in Annap- 

David IS majoring in Bioscience (Pre-Med) m 
hopes of becoming a Medicine-Man and follow- 
ing in the footsteps of his forefather Tecumseh 
Although his major takes a good amount of his 
time, he has managed the time to row bow in the 
— 1 Plebe shell his Freshman year, and since 
then excel in a number of Battalion and Com- 
pany sports However, the majority of the time 
he could be found training his Dog in dark halls, 
sidewalks or wardrooms in the art of respectable 

His love for parties and wild bucking and jerk- 
ing Mexicans accounts for his frequent 
absences on weekends and also for his always 
managing to be one paycheck behind his class- 

His loves are Budweiser, Michelob, Busch 
and Miller Eights, not necessarily in that order. 


Coming out of the All-American City of 1820, 
Don had all the ambitions of each of his compa- 
triots Parties every night, dating 600 girls, and 
expectations of new found friends were the gen- 
ius' from Indy idealistic goals. Somewhere, 
someone neglected to tell him shower parties 
were of no credit 'Bird' could swear that he has 
dated lots of girls, unfortunately the 600 had a 
head on crash at 67. Our bachelor till 30 is now 
a sucker at 22 (right AP). Always "Mister Pre- 
dictable," It's been amazing how a 2 can be a 
3 8 Don's been a leader all the way, all of us 
now know where to find him, wardroom, coke 
machines, and bathrooms This future NFO 
ought to be quite a leader up in the skies If he 
can't find the enemy, he'll just happily play with 
his chickens all day long 


Eddie Stefs brought his fleet-footed track feet 
and VW down from Union, New Jersey with 
sights always set on Navy Air. Being the only 
veteran of two-months car restriction, his class- 
mates always looked down to Ed for the father 
image Occasionally emerging from his cubby- 
hole to the wardroom, his running commentary 
on any TV show delighted the crowd. Any villain 
quickly fell under the attack of Big Ed and 
Dough-Boy, regardless of Iheir size or rank But 
Ed has it together and any wardroom or sack in 
the world will welcome him. Navy Track's loss is 
Navy Air's gam.

earned his "Long Hair" nickname ever since 
Phun Phil never did quite dig the scene at Crab-

Navy Air will continue forever When he is CNO, 
we must remember his cheerleading days, his 
amazing ability to consume one beer without 
becoming ill, and his amazing down to earth 
friendliness May he have following winds in his 
pursuit of Mrs Right, wherever she is God

Wegs set sail for USNA from Michicot, Wis- 
consin with a suitcase in one hand and a "pack 
IS Back" button in the other, A dedicated stu- 
dent of academics. Wigs could usually be found 
plugging and chugging at his desk or cursing a 
computer unless Kareem was being unjustly 
fouled or Green Bay was being cheated by the 
rets. One could always look to Wegs for his 
bright smile, cheerful disposition, and an unend- 
ing variety of basketball "slop" shots' Always 
one to get to the bottom of things. Wegs will go 
the Nuclear Power route upon graduation It is 
Brian's sharp mind, raw humor, and dedication 
to the service that will no doubt serve to make 
him a fine naval officer.

Scotty, a native of Porterville, California, has 
enjoyed the years spent at USNA. He counts it a 
privilege to have been here, and has appreci- 
ated and met victoriously the challenges and 
opportunities presented. He attributes his |oy of 
life, successes and abilities to the growing per- 
sonal relationship he has with Jesus Christ 
Scott has decided to pursue a career in Nuclear

closer and closer to the living Lord, and in help-

Les hails from the locust land of Utah, Inno- 
cent as he was when he first reported, he soon 
found that fast cars and faster women were 
more his way of life Breezing through one of the 
toughest majors at the academy, Les managed 
to maintain a 3 5 In Ana, f\/lan Les is not known 
for working within the system but after three 
class A's he soon found it was easier to live 
closer with the regs Les' good friends, Tracy 
and the gang, have not seen him since the mid- 
dle of Freshman year He interprets the regs to 
read four inches on top as well as on the sides 
Rumor has it that the IRS is investigating the four 
hundred dollars Les made from first chair, fifth 
wing and didn't claim That money was used to 
keep his two machines full of gas and in top 
working order during second and third class 
year Instead of wasting a lot of time and money 
on girls that were not his type, Les made it a pre- 
requisite for all girls to spend the first or second 
date camping with him in the Shenandoah Val- 
ley Les IS an easy going guy but sometimes the 
girls say he's too easy. He has many friends at 
the academy which he has gained through his 
cheerful outlook on life and he is sure to gam

Ganzer came to Navy from sunny San Diego, 
bringing a promising career as a swimmer with 
him. He followed it faithfully three years, winning 
an N ■ as a youngster. Although truly devoted to 
the sport, a cute blonde turned out to be more 
attractive than Coach Lawrence and cold water, 
and 5 out of 6 weekends free spelled the end. In 
addition to swimming, racking and TV viewing 
occupied a lot of Rob's time In fact, some feel 
his wardroom was better than the first class's, 
Rob naturally got his car early Second Class 
year, a beautiful maroon '74 Vette, Although it 
was his pride and joy, he realized it was not 
good enough and throwing caution to the wind, 
he moved up to a '61 Corvair, which he hopes 
will last him long enough to get back to San

"Gooed" and "aaahhed" about through three

were the work of this young TexaA from Irving 
Photography is not his only art form: an accom- 
plished guitarist, he often serenades C^) his 
classmates and friends Russian was his major, 
but his real love is poetry and literature, and girls 
. . . and flying. Soon we expect to see him soar-

Sugar Bear planted himself in the USNA yard 
after pulling roots from Greenville. Texas, He 
came to Navy about as pure and innocent as the 
All-American Boy can be, but the harsh military 
environment soon made him what he is today 
Always working diligently at the tedious studies 
of the dynamic bull major. Hutch maintained his 
extra and long weekends. His A's in attitude and 
conduct were balked by his cunning, intelli- 
gence, and luck, as he had to be one of the most 
non-reg high stripers this place has seen in a

keep a 3,8 average. With all these activities he 
managed to be one of the leading partiers. He 
could always be depended on to go camping or 
skiing at first mention and is a willing and able 
"Bear Watch" as Egor can testify. Chill's favor-

are today " After graduation Chill will be going

Jim hails from the falcon state of Colorado, 
Infamous for his shocking laughter that rang 
down the halls and into the eardrums of his first 
class, Jim found plebe year to have a few more 
wrinkles than the rest of us. With an infallible 
sense of direction to the pad, he was in close 
competition for the company spirit award. His 
tedious and relentless work as honor board 
advisor saw the last of many a good midship- 
man, yet he smiled on in his career to sleep 
through formation, extra duty, D,Q,, etc, etc., 
etc. Until firsty year he had visions of fulfilling a 
life long ambition to fly, but smoke congested 
lungs and Annapolis pollen made him see Sur- 
face Line as mighty fine. 


Craig comes to us from the land of Sugar 
Cane and Alligators. This unsung Revolutionary 
quietly sits and dreams of the day that he can

word go Craig is the quarterback of our first rate 
drinking and holds a grade point average 
directly proportional to the nurriber of nights he 
could remember his name Craig could always 
be heard: "You must be confusin' me with

for so long, but we're right tonight!" Craig will be 
long remembered for his good nature and spar-

Klausser rolled into Historic Annapolis from 
"America's Dairyland," somewhere north of the 
Artie Circle, surprised to find that there were 
parts of the country that didn't have snow twelve 
months of the year and you don't have to sleep 
with two blankets in l\/laryland during the sum- 
mer He immediately proceeded to charm the 
hearts of the upper class he met on induction 
day with a candid response when asked what 
his name might be — "Klauss," he said, "Like 
in Santa, only not so jolly." f^ark became so well 
acquainted with several of the upperclass during 
his Plebe year that they would ttirow parties for 
him and a few of his Plebe type buddies nightly 
before evening meal. The next year and a half 
was almost totally devoted to the systems engi- 
neering department until he realized that sanity 
took precedence over QPR, Most of fVlark's 
weekends since the enlightenment have been 
spent on "Delta Ops." As a firstie, he always 
said that Friday afternoons were the happiest 
hours of his life. Navy Air is fortunate to get such 
a talented and hardworking man dedicated to 
high ideals and personal standards of achieve- 
ment Who could ever forget the time Klausser 
remarked about post Navy plans for himself, "I 
could always drive a beer truck." Adioslvl. F.

After spending a year at Columbia Prep 
School, Paul's dream of becoming a glamorous, 
All-American USNA midshipman came true. The 
six-foot bundle of brawn, teeth and hair came 
here hoping to make his mark in Collegiate foot- 
ball and baseball, but settled for becoming one 
of the company's true "Hatchet Men" on the 
intramural fields; and usually settled to the bot- 
tom of the pool for the P,E Department's swim- 
ming tests. Not letting secondary duties like 
books and homework get in his way, Paul was a 
staunch nnember of the Company's "Merry 
Men," and never missed a good party. Being 
one of the few to be deep selected for A, A,, Rico 
was one of the player-coaches on the Varsity 
Drinking Team, preparing himself for a promis- 
ing career in the fleet after graduation Paul 
relied upon the Surface Line's motto — "Some- 
thing Left" — after being turned down for

tems engineer was always willing and able to 
help his classmates with their studies. (Though 
Pats didn't allow his superb intelligence to get 
sidetracked into the race for grades ) The Bob- 
sey twin of infirm constitution, Pats didn't waste 
his time taking Physical Education when he 
could be in the race With his great physique (or 
lack thereof), Malcolm never let his coordination

Steve came from the wilds of Southern New

Rich or Freddie or the 'IVIaryland 
Connection" hails from Stevensville on the East- 
ern Shore wilderness. Appearing on 30 June 
1971 at USNA as the roly-poly boy from the 
Eastern Shore, he quickly lost thirty pounds and 
has been gaining them back since the end of 
plebe year. Rick's colorful nature and willing- 
ness to pursue fast sports cars, hopefully faster 
women and drink gave him the opportunity to 
use his "Maryland" connections to get himself 
and his classmates out of trouble Rick will also 
be remembered for connecting the boys to the 
"Hideaway" and the "Colonel" where many 
cars rode out the late summer and fall car purge. 
Rick's easy going ways enabled him to cram 
four years of college into the last four weeks of 
each semester. Rick had a flair for longer hair 
which caused him to develop lock-knees from 
admiring it so much in the mirror His other flair 
IS for Navy Air and he's looking forward to gold 
wings (and any other wings he can win along 
the way) Rick will do well flying and will be 
remembered as a doer by his companymates.

John Arline, the man who was most sought 
after at taps time, knew more about the "ins and

Athletics and Pat were his loves "Guseppe"

wishing he was; and who might be the first Naval

Hailing from Nashville. Tennessee, Chris, a 
charter member of room 1 1 03 and better known 
as "HO," quickly traded in his high school wres- 
tling knee pads for boxing gloves and soon met 
with considerable success. His academic con- 
quests were to be admired, for if anyone got 
through the Naval Academy on sheer desire, it 
was he. He is best remembered for his quick wit, 
competitiveness, short lived cycle adventures 
and excellence in betting on Super Bowls A 
best friend of everyone. Chris plans on joining 
the immediate marriage program followed by a 
successful aviation career as 2nd Lt , USf\/IC. 


"Boog" came to the Naval Academy from 
South Amboy, New Jersey with aspirations of 
becoming a Navy baseball player while turning 
down several athletic scholarships to other col-

time regretting this decision Finally coming to 
the realization that he was stuck, Boog hung up 
his cleats in favor of his present activities of 
sleeping, chewing tobacco, and partying on 
weekends Perhaps one can get an idea of why 
he IS sometimes referred to as "Weird Boog" 
when one thinks of a Polish Chinese major sit- 
ting around chewing tobacco and listening to 
blue grass music All of us will have fond memo- 
ries of all the parties and tailgating with "Pot" 
after all the football games No one can quite fig- 
ure out Boog's selection of Marine Corps but 
know that he will be successful in all of his future

From the Land of Lincoln he came with ideas 
and ambitions to move mountains; unfortunately 
he picked on USNA, which proved most impas- 
sive to any improvement, Stephen's academics 
have taken the largest part of his years and 
which won him the title of "Resident Company 
Scholar/' His love of football is only surpassed 
by his love of the Emerald of the sea Stephen is 
one of the few hard core bachelors we have left 
in the company, which can only be explained by 
his perfect record of missing every tea fight 
Plebe year And the metamorphosis which 
seems to entrap us all during these brief years at 
school has been ineffective with Stephen. He will 
always be the same good 'ol Irish from Chicago. 


Tom, more commonly known as "Dils " hails 
most recently from Great Falls — Virginia that Is. 
Dils always found his way to adding a bit of vari- 
ety and excitement to Academy life. Company 
asphixiation from Saturday morning plastic 
experiments, nightly jaunts skindivmg in the 
reflection pool, and water balloon target practice 
on the tennis courts range as some of his tamer 
escapades. Renowned for his running achieve- 
ments, among which number numerals in cross 
country and track and two close calls with for- 
mer girlfriends, we were all amazed to find him 
caught by a tiny Floridan beauty. Looking for- 
ward tograduation and his new roommate, 
Tom's friendly manner and ability to find the 
humor in every situation are sure to make him a 
success in all his endeavors 


Chris was never more than an out-stretched 
thumb away from home in Chevy Chase, which 
over the years came to be known as a friendly 
refuge for many of us He made friends quickly 
as his red hair became a trademark almost as 
distinct as his weekend reddened nose. 
"FOLES" never had any trouble finding a party, 
no matter where it was, but when it came to nav- 
igating to a barber shop his orange ducktail was 
always off course. He was never quite at home 
unless there was a Schlitz nearby but he 
adapted well to the dry weekends which often 
found him studying with equally staggering dili- 
gence His hard work and polite manner have, 
and will continue to, serve him well in whatever 
he decides to do

for all the Melville Miles he would run. Most of

of the 1 7th company's be St "professors of 
gouge." He is a great competitor in company 
sports, excelling in light weight football and his 
favorite sport, basketball. He will be best remem- 
bered for those stylish penny loafers and his ina- 
bility, despite all efforts, to gam just one pound 
His quiet but good nature has helped make him 
one of the most respected of us all and the one 
probably most likely to succeed. A tremendous 
friend, Pat will be a great credit to the standards 
the Naval Service, in particular the Nuclear 
Power Program, upholds. 


With his golf clubs in hand, Mac set out to find 
a course offering as much challenge as he 
found at his home in Houston, Pa. Curiously 
enough he came to the Academy where his 
clubs took an immediate subordinate role while 
other activities came to the forefront. A 1 18 lb. 
giant, Mac quickly made his mark on the wres- 
tling mat. Known to surge to as much as 142 
lbs., he was obviously not limited in his interests, 
A connoisseur of good beer and fine women, he 
quickly availed himself of the party scene. A win- 
ner at all his endeavors, he approached aca- 
demics with the same attitude. After acquiring 
substantial "gravy" during plebe year, Mac was 
able to sit on his laurels and direct more effort to 
wrestling. Continual practice, as experienced by 
his female cohorts, developed him into a distin- 
guished wrestler Unfortunately, after receiving 
two N*s, Mac fell victim to a back injury which 
sidelined him during 1 - c year. Not one to be dis- 
couraged though, he quickly rebounded and 
can be found every Friday at Happy Hour His 
quick wit and cheerful optimism find him at the 
center of any gathering Such characteristics 
will lead him to inevitable success in the future 


After impressing the upper class with his vast 
knowledge of sports trivia as a plebe, John 
skated on to youngster year, where his aggres- 
sive prowess at hops earned him the nickname 
of Maddog. The end of the year found him losing 
his heart and head to his OAO in one of the fast- 
est romances around After a refreshing dip in 
the river the night before Army, John continued 
on through 2 c year with the wife to be and five 
stripes to add to his wardrobe Now on the home 
stretch, Maddog looks forward to wedding bells 
and Nuclear Submarines.

Once upon a time, in that long, hot summer of 
71 , there came to these hallowed halls a young 
Wisconsin lad, known to many as Pooh, Always 
a lover of wine, women, song , . and Thermo, 
and a firm believer in the philosophy of "Let the 
good times roll , ,," Mort came to be famous 
for his June Week exploits. When not cruisin' in 
his TR, with a tall cool one close by, Whitefish 
Bay's native son could always be found at his 
books, making colossal attempts to survive the 
rigors of a Systems Engineering major — a task 
which obviously took its toll, for his hair began to 
fall out . . In the future we can rest with the 
assurance that the friendly skies are safe, for 
Navy Air is about to be blessed by one of IVIil- 
waukee's finest. 


The 'Milford Eagle' sailed on the wings of a 
"BIRD" to the Severn Home for Wayward Boys 
four years past. Weathering numerous 
romances and facing the demanding rigors of 
Analytical IVIanagement, Rick skillfully sidestep- 
ped Calculus, Econ and Probs and Stats He is 
renowned for his ability to sing the words to 
every song on the radio, either past or present. 
This Buckeye, never letting the routine shatter 
his outlook or calm easy going nature, smiled 
once every semester. Continually working to 
improve his academics and waistline, Dick's 
physique was highlighted by his powerful chest. 
Always on the go either on foot or in his TR 6, 
Dick anxiously awaits the future upon the 
threshold of a dream, in Marine Aviation. 


"Murph," the sailing captain of seventeenth 
company came to this famed institution from the 
depths of obscurity which he calls Caruthers- 
ville. Mo. Murph developed the reputation of 
being the most responsible mid in the company 
Whenever something dubious and wild was 
going on in the company, he was usually 
responsible By combining his natural mischie- 
vousness with his wires major. Murph managed 
to cause confusion. When the wardroom tv goes 
on the blink or FM radios change stations by 
themselves, Murph was usually around the cor- 
ner. Despite his mischief, stubbornness and 
southern background. Murph will probably be 
one of the best officers the Navy has seen. 


Willie — USMC bound is sure to be a success. 
He can BS better than anyone we know He 

has done his best to limit his weekly study hours 
to under five. The "pad monster" always seems 
to defeat Bill. His interest in life is Sherrie. Sher- 
rie and Sherrie not necessarily in that order.

ership first set 


Mark, the son of a West Point graduate, came 
to Annapolis to pursue a military career in the 
footsteps of his father He excelled in almost any 
endeavor he chose, although there were a few 
exceptions, mostly feminine. Better known as 
Bred, he was famous for muffing the big chance. 

Mark spent as much time as possible working 
on his management major Sometimes he even 
missed the half time show of the Monday night 
football game in order to study for a test the next 
day Football was always pne of his favorite pas- 
times whether it be as a perennial light-weight 
intramural player or a statistician for the varsity 
games. Mark's winning attitude and natural 
leadership are sure to make his future bright 
whatever it may be. 


Danny drifted into the Academy from Newport 
News, Va., and has continued drifting ever 
since. After the usual hard time of plebe year, 
Danny drifted into youngster year picking up his 
grades and "his girl," both without very much 
effort and not necessarily in that order Danny 
never did put much effort into his History major, 
instead saved his energy during the week for the 
good times on the weekends Not reaching aca- 
demic honors never did really bother Danny 
though, for as he once said. "If the minimum 
wasn't good enough, it wouldn't be the mini- 
mum" Not sure of his service selection due to 
his bad knee, Danny is still hoping that a billet in 
civilian line will pop up Danny's easy going 
nature, his carefree attitude and his ability to 
party at the drop of a hat should ensure success 
at his one major ambition — to graduate from

Who can ever forget "The Head" with all 
those curly locks. As he proceeded to make his 
mark at USNA. really coming into his own 
Youngster Year, he discovered the rack — 
where he can still be found during any free time 
A Florida boy, Tomhad problems adjusting to 
the Northern climate', until he found companion- 
ship in the fall of 2 c year Now Tom concen- 
trates on graduation and tying the big knot, after 
which he will show Nuclear Surface what a fine 
officer and gentleman he is. 


Ken came to us here at Canoe-U as the tides 
do from that old Navy town of Portsmouth, Va 
Although Ken has found the going rocky several 
times, his hard working and highly personable 
nature have carried him over even the sharpest 
obstacles Ken has been very active in company 
sports over the years playing fast-breaking bas- 
ketball, masked man fieldball, a stretching fast 
pitch first baseman, an artful tube watcher, and 
a masterful racker Looking for a tour aboard a 
tin-can shortly after graduation, Ken is hoping to 
eventually make his mark as a Naval Aviator. 


On a cold, gray, windy afternoon in the Fall of 
'73, in the Notre Dame-Navy football game, 
Lindsey Nelson was credited with these famous 
words that were heard throughout the nation 
"Tackle made by Dayton Warfle from Divid- 

ing Creek"^ Must be a mistake in the program" 
and thus "Warfs" was made famous the world 
over He was a man of intense desire who 
couldn't have come closer to a 2.0 if he tried 
His romantic lite was nothing you could write 
about, but of course neither was the Duke's. His 
goal, after graduation, is to be one of the best 
and one of the finest, and without a doubt, Warfs 
will be a success no matter what he does. 


Tim Warren came to USNA from Newark, Del- 
aware, with a short stop at NAPS After strug- 
gling through a hectic year with "Clovis and 
Petie," Tim could finally begin to use the leader- 
ship techniques he had waited for on the "New 
Members" of 31 , Never in too much trouble aca- 
demically, he worked his way toward his goal of 
becoming a Naval Architect, while many others 
were sliding back to General Engineering 
Although he never seemed to be in the limelight 
of the company, since he was in the D&B, Tim 
probably had more drive to become an Officer 
than many of the "Thirsty Third " Now, with 
graduation and Diane in the near future, he is 
still working to become the officer he has been 
waiting for Either Surface or Nuc-Surface Line 
will get a real hard charger come June 4, 1 975

Dere hails from the Corps and what a fine per- 
son he has been to those of us who know him 
Claiming Hazelwood, Mo. as home, Ale came to 
us ready to set the world on fire, after having 
had a magnificent tour at NAPS. Sarge's antics 
at Navy have become legends and the countless 
tales of wine, women, and woe will be Happy 
Hour talk for years to come Always a party- 
maker, the Paratooter spent his weekends jump- 
ing out of perfectly good airplanes and jumping 
into his car(s) with his O.A.O, Planning on 
returning to USMC after graduation, Dere's 
other plans include Air and getting hitched — 
and they said neither could be done! 


Randy arrived in Crabtown with his collection 
of Playmate sweethearts, from Ivloline, Ohio, 
graduating from one obscurity to another. 
Doughboy was immediately drawn to athletics 
with most of his workouts originating in the rack. 
If he wasn't drifting in the hall during study hour 
looking for gouge, he was barbering for the 
company or looking for chow cafter 150's Ran- 
dy's moods were as varied as his hairdos, and 
as unorthodox as his drinking habits and taste in 
music. Most of his liberty time was spent cruis-

Danny, better known as "Rudy," descended 
upon the Academy from Martlnsburg, West Vir- 
ginia He came armed with his slide rule, "in and 
out" boxes and his omnipresent filing system. In 
company, Rudy gives the "Promulgator" a run 
for his money when it comes to "passing the 
word" on an event or activity. 

Noted for his love of "pushing papers," Rudy 
could always be counted upon to have any and 
all forms, special instructions and the latest 
changes to the beloved USNAR, He was the 
local Batt Supply and Admin, rolled into one — If 
Rudy doesn't have it — you don't need if Danny 
should have a long and note-worthy career in 
"Hymie's Navy," so long as he stays clear of the 
Navigation Dept. (Remember Portland'^) The 
prediction is that "the Rude" will have the entire 
submarine force "organized" in less than one 
week after becoming a participating member 
Take 'er down Ens. Rudy!!! 


Coming to us as an outstanding individual 
from the risque hills of New Hampshire, Larry is 
noted for his true wit and amazing energy. 
Known to his friends as the Slothe, Larry contin- 
ually amazed us with his romantic tact and aca- 
demic perseverance. 

During his four years at the Academy, Larry 
was famous with young lovelies in the area for 
his "painful knee" and his always unexpected 
watchi standing. He finally found his true love as 
a first classman, overlooking the well built mer- 
chandise at the local Chevrolet dealership 
Known to the company freshmen as "the Shaft 
Monster," Larry became the first "Polar Bear 
Commander" during his second class year. 
Countless teaming freshmen were heard to 
cheer as he broke the ice in Santee Basin. 

Larry has always excelled while at USNA His 
boasts have gone from "never drinking in the 
shower with a broken leg" to "study at Pensa- 
cola, what's study." Anyway, we wish Larry 
many happy dreams and always another chorus 
of "My Sweet Lord." 


With a sparkling career behind him in Danville, 
California, Bill came to USNA ready to take the 
world on in the field of mechanical engineering. 
His major interests in soccer and girls made him 
an outstanding candidate for the ever prominent 
USNA "Jocks and Dear John Club." After sur- 
viving a tough freshman year as "the man in 
charge of window closing," he earned the nick- 
name of the Promulgator With a schedule for 
everything. Bill worked hard at writing romantic 
letters, car shopping and on occasion — aca- 

Although his permanent residence changed 
from California to New Jersey while at USNA, 
Bill's heart and soul remained in the West The 
names of the Oakland Raiders and Oakland Ath- 
letics were never taken in vain in his presence. 
At the end of Youngster year. Bill fell in love for 
the first time — with a Corvette, After several 
thwarted attempts at romance Bill will finally win 
his true love this year. Bill has always been one 
of the most optimistic and fantastic people in the 
Brigade. His true test of optimism will occur 
when he goes to work for the original "old man 
of the sea," Admiral Rickover. 


, , . But Oz never did give nothing to the fat 
man, that he didn't already have. 


Originally from Grand Island, Nebraska, Don 
moved to Iowa the end of his Plebe Year. Don's 
"carefree" attitude towards certain "establish- 
ment ideas" enabled him to actively pursue his 
interests in the liberal arts and the medical field 
Being an ardent athlete, Don successfully 
evaded six intramural seasons through such 
devious means as Masquerader's productions, 
broken ankles, and assisting with the "Aqua- 
rock squad," 

His claims to fame are presidency of the Prot- 
estant Chapel Choir, and having maintained the 
best record in the Brigade during his four year 
tour as company honor representative His pol- 
icy was "Nothing seen — Nothing heard — No 
action taken'" Noted for his "stellar" study hab- 
its, Don has managed to remain in good stand- 
ing in the "Bicosci" program Don's romantic 
flare was somewhat stifled due to him having a 
O.A.O in Nebraska. Wedding bells are definitely 
in his immediate future. 


With the exit of Farrell, Milo Mindbender was

amassed no less than eleven letters in football, 
basketball, track, rack, and girls. Stuff then went 
into the Navy as a Whitehat and at NAPS distin- 
guished himself as Military Man of the Year

"Urbs" arrived here at Mother B from the 
sunny beaches of California and proceeded to 
dazzle everyone with his Tarzan like body and 
Mark Spitz swimming ability. "Aqua-rock" spent 
many a fine afternoon soaking up some Natato- 
rium water. Plebe year was really a bag for Urbs 
with such tine roommates and with guidance 
from his upperclass buddies like T.O, from a rel- 
atively obscure start, "Volkswagen" proceeded 
to enjoy the finer points of Youngster year with 
parties (how did he get those strange lumps on 
his head after Notre Dame) and with more feats 
of strength. It was 3/c year that he finally 
learned the secret of academic success — 
many a night he could be found roaming the 
halls in search of the best gouge As he said, 
"You can't hate gouge." Company comedian, 
academic advisor and resident music expert, 
"muscles" was always up for a good time (or a 
pizza — whichever came first). If need be he 
would go AWOL to see Led Zeppelin. Gradua- 
tion will find him headed for the Nuclear Navy 
and if ever there is a rock and roll heaven, he is 
sure to be there.

Ohio, Bill (affectionately known as Stump) has 
been fighting a never ending battle against 
Navy Bill's work with the Dumb and Bungle 
Corps was always praised by the USNA hier-

said, "Good job with the D&B this summer; that 
will be 75 + 2 " Were it not for the "42," Stump's 
attendance record at parties would have been 
perfectly intact. 

Stump's classmates confronted him with a

From the scalding hot beaches of sunny Flo- 
rida, Bob came to USNA with his sights set on 
being a Navy Track jock Nothing was to stop 
him. Neither his first semester QPR nor a bout 
with MONO was to keep this man from his N'''. 
But really Bob, what is a coach for'' 

Throughout Youngstei year, "Spring" devel- 
oped a reputation in many fields. Not only were 
his hours logged in the "rack" and occasional 
"cramps" impressive, but his taste in women — 
outstanding. ('') 

As second class year moved upon us, Bob's 
views on life changed He decided to skirt the 
big time in sports and settle down to being a sim- 
ple "company man." His participation in com- 
pany sports, company parties, company cars 
and women will never be forgotten. 

With Bob's love for the Beach Boys, Firebirds, 
water skiing, and the sun, he will soon find him- 
self back in Florida as he plans to get this set of

ups and downs For the first year and a half DK's 
love affairs were like a ten yard dash, they were 
over before he really got started After Pat came

thing that was left in doubt was his service selec- 
tion It seemed as though most people did not

W W came to the prison from the California 
settlement of Pasadena, With him came all of his 
conceited stories about how great California 
was. He was a football player, lover, and mid- 
shipman in that order. W, W. had many skills, 
one of which was not getting caught Others 
included varsity track, social tack, using phones 
illegally, sketching, speeding, sleeping, and 
avoiding the N IS, 

W W was known for his working hard and 
playing hard He showed his leadership ability 
many times and was a firm believer in never giv- 
ing a sucker an even break. 

W W had many loves while at the prison but 
his first love is Navy Air and the Navy will be

fighting tooth and nail for that small spotlight on

After swimming through his first year and 
amazing his classmates with his ability to skate 
while looking as if he was working, Bob spotted 
the Chapel Dome 1 3 hours later than the major- 
ity of his classmates and immediately began the 
great escape on his way to avoiding over 500 
demerits in his Youngster year For this and vari- 
ous other escapades he earned the nickname 
"Houdini" which he felt was better than the 
plebe nickname "ICOR" lovingly bestowed 
upon him Parents Weekend by his mother 
Probably not one of the company's biggest 
social giants, Bob astounded everyone with his 
widespread romances ranging from Kansas to 
Virginia, Confirming everyone's doubts as to his 
sanity, he volunteered to spend 10 weeks sub- 
merged his first class summer and loved it' so 
much that he decided to make it at least a 5 year 
career. While at Navy, Bob starred in many ways 
including swimming and flour bombing. As one 
very wise person once put it, "Bob, I guess you 
do have a problem!" 


Big Jimmy left Dallas one day when he 
decided that being a Naval officer might be more 
fun than being a Texas Ranger, His friendliness 
is exceeded only by the size of his ears and his 
ability to find good-looking girls. His claims to 
fame are his unique ability to wham-o a peanut 
butter jar, and to single-handedly wipe out a 
soccer team (his own, unfortunately). Most of 
his academic battles were with the wires depart- 
ment, and much of his spare time was spent try- 
ing to coax more volume from his stereo. He 
never could understand why his roommate and 
an occasional BOOW wanted it turned down. 
Navy Air will gain a long, tall Texan heading for 
the "rodeo in the sky" after graduation, if Jimbo 
can manage to squeeze into a cockpit.

of Mother B. on a "Gouge Safari." Second class

anyone get the wrong impression, it must be 
pointed out that Mark is saving himself for the

Alabama lost numerous exciting times but

Merit List, all while dating the Dean's daughter. 
The other tales of conquest are too amazing to

ing his four year stay at Mother B, This uncom- 
mon luck, gave him an unbeaten track record in 
good squad leaders, intramurals, and duty sec- 
tions, to mention a few. Lucky has the distinction 
of being the only midshipman to choose his 
major in his first class year. During second class 
summer, with Georgetown tugging at his coat- 
tails offering a scholarship and freedom, Mike 
decided to endure the four years at USNA and 
delay his law career. Although Mike has uncom- 
mon luck his academic success was the result of 
many diligent hours with the books. He is a hard 
working, concerned, and extremely liberal indi- 
vidual who has a lot to offer the Naval Service. 
Graduation will show Lucky a June Week wed- 
ding and a career as a Naval Flight Officer. 


If the days of sail could somehow miracu- 
lously return, Scott would be doing his best to 
usher them in. A romantic at heart, he would 
have fit in well with Lord Nelson . . , the only 
trouble being that he probably would have 
yearned for the days of Columbus As all "Old 
Salts" seem to be, Scott is blessed with an abun- 
dant practical knowledge and an ability to do 
almost anything. His good sense and maturity 
have impressed many people and will stand him 
in good stead with his future superiors. 
"Blessed" with a quick and not too subtle wit, 
Scott has an answer to any person, place, or 
thing, any time, anywhere. A traveller and 
adventurer at heart, Scott'had no trouble finding 
things to do on weekends, especially with his 
motorcycle and the '62. Musically inclined, Scott 
made many contributions to the D & B during his 
four years, but he had to pay the consequences 
of this association when the TMR came along. 
As far as service selection is concerned, there 
has never been any doubt in Scott's mind — 
"Service Line is mighty fine." 


Big Rich, coming to the brigade from that All- 
Amencan city of Philadelphia, has lost only once 
duhng his stay at the Boat School, and that was 
a 4 year heavyweight bout with the rack. When 
not in battle, "Cool Mid Luke" could be found if 
you knew where the popcorn was; or slinking 
around corners heading for the steerage, for 
whoever heard of a 140 pound coxswain. Big 
Rich's true success lies in the fact that he 
always lived up to his motto of, "Never do today 
what can be done tomorrow." Rich has decided 
to join those IFNAGS under the sea, someplace 
where that loan can be paid off. "You're there."

Four years ago. if someone was to ask Oat 
what the Naval Academy was. he probably 
couldn't have answered it After limping through 
plebe year and building up some much needed 
gravy for the next three years of battle w\th the 
ME Department, he soon found out on young- 
ster cruise that the Navy meant ships at which 
time he began looking to the sky Two years 
swallowed up in the cave in the shaft got him 
through the tough years with a minimum of has- 
sle, a lot of hair, a lot of music, and a not too

After digging himself out of the snow of Ver- 
mont, Gary decided to head south for Annapolis 
and warmer weather. Little did he know just how 
warm it could get; he found out though as Plebe 
year got underway. Always concerned with 
increasing his pro knowledge, Gary spent a 
good portion of his first year giving "Tank 
Reports" while the upper class chowed down on 
their favorite vegetable, asparagus. 

Gary has always done very well in the book 
department, ranking high in the class his entire 
time here. This didn't stop Gary from engaging 
in other activities as well. He will always be 
remembered for his electnc laundry bag and the 
demolition of a coffee pot. 

An aero major of acclaim, Gary changed 
course at the last minute and chose to fly under 
the sea. While Gary has always shown a great 
deal of leadership, there is still some question as 
to how he got his fifth stripe first class year. 

Better known as the Hack, Gary will make a 
fine submariner and an omnipotent eight-ball. 


Coming directly to USNA from high school in 
Memphis, Tenn., where he had an excellent 
record in academics and track, D. C. wasted no 
time in proving that college life is a different 
story D. C. took the rigors of Academy life in 
stnde, and was the recipient of many outstand- 
ing deals during his four years, including duty 
over Thanksgiving, which permitted him to 
spend two consecutive Turkey Days at cozy 
Ivlother B , and his fifth choice on first class 
cruise Fredricksburg, Va , was the scene of 
most of D C 's activity after Plebe year, when a 
blind date became the center of his attention. 
Never one to let academics interfere with a good 
time, D. C still managed to stay one step ahead 
of the AC Board throughout his four years With 
his quick wit and personality, D. C. should prove 
to be a welcome addition to the Naval Service. 


Hank came to the Un-college from the frozen 
northland of f\/linnesota. His first winter at Navy 
he had such a capacity for fresh air that his 
roommates almost froze to death on those cold 
Maryland nights. Hank got right down to busi- 
ness Plebe year and earned some of the highest 
grades in the company — it was a good thing 
because he needed the "gravy" for the Young- 
ster Year Slide Not easily discouraged. Hank 
kept his nose in the books most of second class 
year — mainly cheap western novels. Hank's 
main pastime was running, and he never needed 
an excuse. However, he turned in one of his 
best times when a Baltimore lass got stars in her 
eyes. Hank always knew how to be serious and 
work within the system without taking it or him- 
self too seriously. The Fleet stands to gain a fine 
officer and a valuable asset when Hank walks 
through Bilger's Gate for the last time.

an obscure farm town called Petersburg, III , 
hoping to mapr In animal husbandry Realizing 
his need for recognition, Mark dived head first 
into the boxing program, and soon became 
known as "What's-his-name." The Int'l Har- 
vester Rep soon got on a first name basis with 
dental, and after 272 years of major dental sur- 
gery increased his overbite '/z inch. IVIark's fond- 
est dream in life was to be reincarnated as a 
sponge, and soon realized that dream at the 
Severna Park Holiday Inn. After 4 years of 
devoted service from' his sponsors, who main- 
tained his summer villa on the Severn, he 
rewarded them with his senior picture (auto- 
graphed of course). IVIark's favorite was, "If you 
have, I want it." Never lacking in spirit. Mark 
could be found picking the December soybean 
crop during June Week, or arguing with his 
roommate, the Grand Dragon. Never one to be 
outdone, Mark hopes to be blowing ballast with 
the Nukes after graduation. 


Teddy with his bnght eyes, rosy cheeks, and 
well built body came to that great, great institu- 
tion called Navy from a nice home in Fayette- 
ville, N.C, Always one to take his vitamins and 
stay out of trouble. Teddy had no problem being 
a good boy He made the Dean's List numerous 
times and never had any problems memorizing 
the reg book or other QPR's of the other first 
class in the company Physically well-fed-Ted 
had no real problems. After working many hours 
with mirrors and weights Teddy improved his 
physical condition considerably In fact Charles 
Atlas was so impressed that he began sending 
him all sorts of literature, but Teddy in all his 
modesty, politely turned him down saying it was 
just not for him Teddy with his pretty hair, cute 
looks, and well rounded brain-body combination 
should excel and go far in Navy Air just like he 
has done all his life. Love.

Patches, or Minnesota Fats II rolled into 
Canoe U from thie hills of Yorktown Heights, NY. 
While at Navy Joe somehow managed to get 
everything done without really doing anything 
Lashing on his skates at the end of plebe year, 
he thought he'd sail through lite at Navy without 
a Form 2. But, Firstie Cruise and that scraggly 
stache turned that dream into ashes as he wel- 
comed the sun up every morning for next 2 
weeks Assoc member of the Company Rack 
Team, Joe never let the other side of midnight 
catch him out of the pad. Weekends were great 
as his wife-to-be was always in the parking lot 
with his little red Fat. I mean Fiat. Him and Claud 
managed to raid every store in a 50 mile radius 
of the Dome Oh well, graduation will see Joe off 
to P-cola in search of his NFO wings. From there 
it's the P-3 and the beautiful sight of steak and 
eggs Yep, land-based, fat and happy, Joe's got

Known to all as Pops, Mike came to us from 
Sacramento after trying out college and a two 
year mission in France. As lover of the arts he is 
continually building up his personal book collec- 
tion that will soon rival the library of Congress. 
Mike has gained the respect of all through his 
cool and calm demeanor. Not one to waste 
words he always knows what he's talking about. 
As the ladies' man, Mike has done his best to 
make life enjoyable for several of them, although 
none have been able to make him turn in his 
walking papers yet. A true professional in every 
sense of the word and a great guy to boot, Mike 
will surely find a good life in the Naval profes- 


Randal Clay comes to Mother B from just 
about every state in the nation (and a few for- 
eign countries). Weighing in at a mobile, hostile 
and agile 1 18 lbs , Randy immediately went on 
his bulk-up program, which consisted of 23 5 
hrs of rack per day. Never one to let his social 
life interfere. Randy continued in the Big Sleep 
while his plebe year gravy kept his head above 
water. Firm of spirit. Dumbo fought off the evils 
of those gas eaters and finally ended up with a 
'vette. Randy was never one to let the moods of 
others or the rapid pace get him down. After 
being pushed off the 4th deck as a joke. Randy 
was quoted as saying "Geez Louise you guys" 
Looking to the future R. C. hopes to "Fly the 
Friendly Skies." 


Wheels joined the class of '75 from the 
metropolis of Worcester, New York After a very 
typical plebe year, he chose the overly demand- 
ing oceanography major and soon was doing 
problems from every course except his own. 
Climbing ever higher on the social ladder, Poin- 
dexter could be found in one of his favorite 
haunts every weekend: Mitcher or Nimitz Never 
one to turn down a job he was elected watch 
coordinator and Honor Rep, which shortened 
his leave and study more than once. A step 
above and apart from his classmates, Dan knew 
that life was greener through the bottom of a 
Boone's Farm Bottle. With his classmates won- 
dering if he was deaf and color blind, he contin- 
ued to buy Chuck Mangione records and the 
"mean, green washing machine." After gradua- 
tion Wheels hopes to join the Surface Line jocks 
on a Knox Class target. 


A native of Michigan and a Navy junior, John 
came to the Academy with a great deal of desire 
and had little trouble adjusting to the system. He 
quickly found that he had his own ideas about 
sen/ice selection though and decided on Manne 
Corps during plebe year. An adventurer with 
natural athletic ability John inadvertently 
became involved with Cheerleading, taught him- 
self gymnastics, and was selected captain of the 
Cheerleaders Not known to put things bluntly 
when speaking of combat ("I'm really looking 
forward to a Gook war — .something I can sink 
my teeth into"), John is the originator of the now 
famous "urugh" that can frequently be heard 
coming from his room He brings into the Corps 
a good sense of humor, "spit and shine" 
appearance, and a desire to see even the most 
disliked things through, like academics. 


Steve, the product of an Air Force family, 
came to Navy U. from the wilds of West Texas. 
Perhaps the climate in that area was responsible 
for his dry wit. Steve's ability to see humor in 
almost everything was not always understood by 
others, but it served him well during the difficult 
days at USNA. A charter member of the "Physi- 
cal Reprobate Squad" he battled the PE depart- 
ment, but with the aid of remedial push-up ses- 
sions in his squad leader's room he quickly 
defeated the forces of evil led by Heinz Lenz 
Youngster Year saw Steve "hit the mixer trail" 
as a sophisticated upper classman It proved to 
be a long trail and Steve was still looking for the 
trail's end First Class Year! That same persever- 
ance along with quick thinking will serve him sell 
as Steve joins the ranks of Navy Air.

A true son of Italy, Tony came to the shores of 
the Severn from San Pedro, California. "The 
Wop" a high school gridiron standout, soon 
established himself as a demon of the intramural 
fields but through efficient budgeting of his time 
still managed to earn his N in varsity rack. No 
girl could keep Tony long before he answered 
the call of the wild. However, one unique rela- 
tionship earned him the title of Mister Profi- 
ciency A frustrated thespian. he could often be 
found roaming the halls as a mafioso or |ust 
drifting in white sheets and carrying a flower; 
ever big on where his little bit of gravy would go 
the furthest, A surface liner all the way, Tony's 
easy going personality and inner seriousness 
and dedication will make him a welcome mem- 
ber of any wardroom. 


John came to Annapolis from Lincoln. 
Nebraska with his heart set on playing major 
college football and flying Navy |ets, but now 
was not the time and this was not the place 
Knee injuries frustrated both hopes and forced 
him to pursue other interests. Never one to buy 
the whole academy system, John was quick to 
realize what was not essential, and always oper- 
ated with his own list of priorities. When Carms 
couldn't be found writing a letter in his room he 
was either in the weight room or over at the hos- 
pital checking out a new nurse or physical thera- 
pist After spending so much time with his corre- 
spondence and Lucky Bag activities he seems 
to be headed for a bright career as a Public

DIx came rolling out of the North Carolina nills 
with an unbounded love for life and two wheels. 
Earning the nickname "Hogman" while on T- 
tables plebe year, he calmed down youngster 
year when he got engaged to Anne 

He almost quit plebe year, but when he got 
"Ole Blue," and had the opportunity to go out 
and get the wind in his face once in a while, he 
decided that USNA might not be so bad after all. 
The Ac Board plebe year convinced him to be 
an English major, though after hearing him talk, 
one might wonder if he's mastered it yet. 

Another of his accomplishments is the intro- 
duction to the pleasures of Red Man to nearly 
every first class in the company. The only 
Marine in the company, Dix plans on flying Huey 
Cobras, eventually.

Brian arose from an obscure potato patch 
near Philadelphia to seek fame and glory on the 
banks of the Severn, He quickly demonstrated to 
all that he had a good head on his shoulders — - 
the brain never produced outstanding grades, 
but the skull proved to be a lethal weapon in any 
impromptu battle. His professional knowledge 
was firmly established by being elected the 
"Most Outstanding Plebe on Youngster Cruise," 
much to the envy of all. A man of high character, 
he was not above snaking his roommate in his 
continuing search for happiness ever after. Navy 
Air drew him from his earthly bounds, and the 
fighting Irish will do his future battles in the sky. 


In the years "Speed" has resided in Annapo- 
lis, we've learned the only thing to expect from 
him is the unexpected. Fearless in the face of 
danger, kind to animals and children, Bruce has 
become the kind of man you would definitely 
buy a used car from. Aside from professing his 
sage philosophy on females, and impersonating 
a famous French aristocrat, he managed to find 
time to maintain an outstanding academic aver- 
age and serve his fellow man, willingly of course 
as company commander. After graduation, 
Bruce will apply his varied talents in safeguard- 
ing our freedom beneath the waves. Sleep 
soundly America. 


Jerry heralded from Highland High School in 
Albuquerque, New Mexico. Being an Air Force 
brat, Mo was almost sidetracked to that school 
in Colorado Springs, but somehow ended up in 
Crabtown. Jerry undertook the field of Physics 
at the boat school and studied just enough to 
earn himself long weekends and a cum high 
enough to get himself into school again, when 
he decides to go. Mo decided to take the basic 
five-and-out steamer duty, and in doing so 
found a way to stay on dry land for at least the 
first year of his only sea-tour. On a hectic P-rack 
Wednesday in the spring of second-class year, 
Jerry's roommate of four years inadvertently 
introduced him to the girl of his dreams, result- 
ing in a June Week wedding. With Jerry's intelli- 
gence, ability, and amiability, he is sure to be a 
success in whatever field he may endeavor. 


Eric Guerrazzi came to us from Torrington, 
Conn,, (the ball bearing capital of the world) via 
Bainbridge, Md, Not content with being a 98 lb 
weakling, Eric made a major change in his life 
and began pushing steel Being the dedicated 
self-disciplined individual that he is, Guerrazz 
spent many an hour in the catacombs of the 
field house pursuing his goal of becoming the 
Navy's Charles Atlas, 

Being a physics major who studied electro- 
magnetic wave theory for hours in the ward- 
room, Eric had no trouble with the time consum- 
ing job of company commander. With such an 
amiable easy going disposition that Eric pos- 
sesses It's not surprising that he chose to go low 
and slow at service selection We are forever 
grateful to Guerrazz for taking us under his wing 
just like any good mother would do. 


Tim descended on the Academy from San 
Luis Obispo, and quickly established himself as 
a stand out football player In his spare time, he 
can almost always be found walking in a daze, 
wondering why his hair is rusting, staring at cer- 
tain hometown pictures or studying. With these 
attributes, it is little wonder why our infamous 
football co-captain is sometimes found catching 
"Z's" under the bench during a tight game, Tim 
will leave all the guys with many fond memories; 
everything from our first Army/Navy party to his 
nightly poetry recitation; but there is still, how- 
ever, an ion of hope left for him; time will tell (for 
instance around June 1975 — no, not gradua- 
tion, either). With Tim's sense of humor, easy 
going personality, and, above all, his profession- 
alism (not to mention his red hair), he will be a 
true asset to any command and welcome in any 
wardroom His positive attitude and natural lead- 
ership ability will hold him m good stead in the 
fleet, and any other endeavor. 


Houph-waite Wordie, the famous squirrel 
trainer, first came to our attention through his 
program of sound financial management. Take a 
regular midshipman's pay and add the Caribou 
bonus check — you then have enough to get 
through a month. 

Outside the classroom was where his mind 
went to work. He will be remembered as the 
founder of the short-lived "Over-the-hill-gang " 
and as the promoter of the "Trucking Trio." He 
was most proud, however, of his unfailing ability 
to procure beautiful bovines for buds in a bind. 

In four years, the Word couldn't be taught 
how to say anything but badadas (i e potatoes), 
nor could anything be exacted from him about 
Helen of Troy except she is a "friend of my sis- 

However, he does have to be one of the best 
looking guys ever to buy a red Fiat. 


Greg arrived at Canoe U from the "beloved" 
Island of Long. Hoffo had been a man before his 
times, the opening of the ice rink was no big 
deal, for Hoffs had been skating at USNA for 
years Academics were like the plague and once 
settling down to 1 5 hours of sand modelling and 
remedial intelligence, Greg was able to pass. 
Not being able to pursue the finer aspects of 
agriculture such as hops, barley, grapes, and 
fertilizing, Hoffs was forced into the studies of 
the "Bull." 

Hoffs was able to rowdy with the best of us 
until Helen of Huntington struck. The family car 
and marriage syndrome set in, Hoffs was lost. 
Not really. Hof1 is still able to rotate his tires with 
the best of us and singledom seems secure for a 
few more years, he hopes. Greg will be an asset 
to the fleet if the swash-buckling days of yore 
ever return but until then we'll just have to settle 
for a fine Naval pilot and officer 


in the summer of '71 the "man from the windy 
city" blew into USNA bringing all his hot air with 
him. Self-imposed titles such as "His Most Royal 
Imperial Potentate" illustrate the revered esteem 
in which his classmates were supposed to hold 
him (Perhaps for his great singing'^). Ed's sense 
of humor, his most memorable side, was unique 
to say the least; and grueling, as anyone who 
has ever been subjected to it could attest to. But 
better that, than argue with him, that was really 
fighting a losing battle. "Jabo" was active 
sportswise in sailing, and academically in a dou- 
ble major. These took up most of his time but not 
enough to keep him from being one of the most 
dominant personalities in the company.

A. B Johnson arrived in the thriving metropo- 
lis of Annapolis tronn the bursting town of 
Windshield in the Mountains of Kansas, Having 
had experience with the vast watery expanses in 
America's Dustbowl. it was a natural that the 
Cap'n would take his major in Naval Architec- 
ture Grades for A. B were not his forte, Adm 
Rickover even made the comment, "Well John- 
son, at least you're in a tough major." Due to the 
consequences of this statement A B will go as 
slow and as low as you can get under the sea 
But no adjustment troubles are forecast for 
those long submerged cruises since A, B. has 
been pinned to the "mystery lady of Chicago" 
whom he's only se6n 12 times in 4 years Does 
she really exist A B or are those double reser- 
vations at the Key Bndge Marnot just for our 
benefit True to his slow and low philosophy, A 
B. has managed to have only 1 5 seconds total 
glory in 4 years of mile runs. One can't say A. B 
didn't train though considering how he cut back 
on smokes and coffee 3 days before each one, 

A. B, will always be remembered for his stead- 
fast personality and ability to pinpoint the truth in 
any situation. The quiet A, B. will get along fine 
with the Silent Service. 


Bill came to the Academy from Fountain Val- 
ley, California, after a year of junior college. 
Since that fateful last day of June '71 , Kirks was 
doomed to be a victim of the notorious pad mon- 
ster, but he quickly made friends and came to 
worship the rack. In Bill's order of priorities rack 
came first, television second, and his Systems 
Engineering Major a distant third. On the other 
hand, you could count on seeing his roly-poly 
body around on the intramural fields, always try- 
ing hard and usually succeeding. Service selec- 
tion night found Kirks going Navy Air, something 
he had set his sights on many years ago After 
graduation. Bill will undoubtedly fly high with his 
jovial personality and knack for making friends. 


Dean, hailing from Fargo, North Dakota, has 
gone through many transitions in the last four

chose to fly for a living, after a first class summer 
of working the cats on a flattop. Dean has 
decided on surface line as his path to fame and 
glory There should be no problem with Dean's 
sense of accomplishment as long as he doesn't 
spit into the wind and country music is kept play- 
ing in the wardroom.

Hailing from New Providence, N,J, and Sandy 
Hook Bay, Gil J came to USNA with the heart of 
a true sailor. He was taken aback, however, 
when he came to the realization that the age of 
sail had passed for the US Navy, Not being one 
to let setbacks affect him, Gil resigned himself to 
the age of steam and became a General Engi- 
neering Major. With such a tough academic 
career to worry about, Gil J still found time to 
become two year holder of the Brigade heavy- 
weight wrestling title. To sustain his QPR, he 
quickly developed into the company gouge 
man. His aptitude for collecting academic publi- 
cations also enabled him to manage a vast 
resource of extra curncular material that made 
the lonely hours in Mother B more enjoyable for 
those of us that could read. For those who 
couldn't handle words, there were always illus- 
trated copies available Anyone seeing Gil's 
dimensions will expect big things from him in 
the future He had enough gouge to enable him 
to pull the big sting on Adm, Rickover so that he 
can look forward to a career in the machinery 
spaces of a nuclear powered surface ship big 
enough to be comfortable.

Bob achieved success at an early age when 
he became a striper in his high school. With this 
background it was expected that he would have 
no difficulties at the Academy. Fate, however, 
was not so kind. Bob was the first member of the 
class to be admitted to the hospital when his kid- 
ney got in the way of somebody's knee. This 
turned out to be only the beginning. He went on 
to lose a tooth to the Hoow's fist and break an 
ankle in a mud puddle. After a couple of years 
Bob finally managed to settle into the normal 
routine Being a bull major his rack was rarely 
empty. On the other hand, it was seldom 
crowded despite his earnest efforts. His luck 
seemed to turn around, however, when he 
passed over the Marines and became a Navy 
NFO. Now all he has to worry about is which he 
IS losing faster, his eyesight or his hair^ 



Carl arrived here at USNA from the snow cov- 
ered wastes of Washington state. He shortly 
thereafter established himself as the hibernation

nation constant known universally as a full Nor- 
ton A full Norton is explicitly defined as simu- 
lated death from noon on Tuesday until quarters

of bodily metabolism He has notched this feat 
countless times in his four years here Carl 
became a favohte of the Annapolis-DC. tavern 
owners association who bestowed upon him the

even the slightest of scruples has fallen far 
below that of even destitute "lonely" men. 

His study habits were as mystical as his 
grades. His philosophy was "What you can put 
off 'til tomorrow can be put off 'til the day after." 
Consequently many nights were dedicated to 
vivarin and a lightning fast pencil. In all serious- 
ness Carl's "Bubbling" personality, "obvious 
looks" and "good brains" will further him in his 
career as a Naval Flight Officer. 


John came to the Academy after spending a 
year at Johns Hopkins His taste of college life 
there made it easy for him to adapt to life at 
Navy "Voulez" as he came to be called by his 
bilingual friends, quickly established himself as 
one of the exciting personalities in the company. 
He was an avid sports fan with an unprece- 
dented record of supporting losers. This stand- 
ard of excellence was reflected in all facets of 
Voulez's life. His favorite city was Philadelphia 
and his choice of premium beer was Schmidts 
Voulez's idea of excitement was looking at slides 
of all the churches and monuments he had vis- 
ited during his world travels. A fitting tribute was 
paid to Voulez when he was named the unani- 
mous choice for the company's bowling league 
statistician Despite all these charming qualities, 
John was one of the most well liked members of 
the company, especially when his parents were 
throwing a tail-gate party.

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, and an ardent 
Woody Hayes supporter at that, Trent has the 
noted distinction of being one of the few remain- 
ing systems majors among us. In his career at 
USNA, Trent has dabbled in numerous com- 
pany, batt, and club sports, worked on the Hop 
Committee, been a vice-chairman of the Ring 
Dance, secretary of the Parachute Club, and a 
source of answers to fledgling engineers. For 
service selection, he plans to sell his soul to 
Adm RIckover, having picked up his patrol pin 
and DOOW qualification this summer There Is 
one question that arises though: Why does a 
potential submariner also possess a set of gold 
jump wings'' Maybe he knows more about sub 
duty than he is letting on to. 


Bob hails from Lincoln, Nebraska, or was it 
Montclair, New Jersey'' No one has been able to 
figure it out yet A true salt at heart. Bob has 
sailed on both yawls and "outrage " In those 
fleeting spare moments, if not studying the 
underside of his eyelids, Bob acted as a P-rade 
judge and as a vice-president of the Car Club. 
The Bopper majored in Ocean Engineering, but 
his true claim to fame was the introduction of the 
now famous mode of transportation, "The Be- 
Bop " For service selection Bob plans on going 
Navy Air and fly helos but upon graduation will 
add the extra weight of a plain gold band to his 
left hand. (Maybe a nose ring too'') Wherever 
the Beep may bop throughout the world, one 
can only wish him clear skies and smooth sail- 


Dick was one of the older boys who found 
enough love and leisure at the Academy to 
make him want to give up a life of swing and set- 
tle down During four years Dick carved for him- 
self a lasting niche in the company's wardroom, 
racking, and ragtime band Coming from only 
half a town in Ohio. Dick decided upon the five 
year — see the Navy — approach Dick's repu- 
tation for cheerfulness and good-natured chi- 
canery, though non-existent, did provide a pop- 
ular relief during many a dull moment Always 
willing to take time out for a classmate, made 
possible by a ridiculously easy academic strug- 
gle, Dick took pride in the number of duty week- 
ends and parties he could avoid Upon gradua- 
tion Dick's heart will join him as he tries to get it 
on with a Charleston Skimmer 


Bill's unique personality was recognizable 
from the first time he joined our club On or off 
the field, in or out of class, his even tempered 
disposition was admired by all who knew him. 
Squi never let the fact he was from New Jersey 
hinder his frank and outspoken opinions on life. 
With History as his chosen discipline. Bill began 
a determined climb from scholastic disaster to 
academic respectability. His newly acquired 
memory and mathematical aptitude proved use- 
ful in many concrete applications such as play- 
ing trivia, fixing point spreads, and counting one 
dollar bills. In any situation. Bill's sobriety and 
steadfast demeanor prevailed, no matter how 
obnoxious the circumstances. In joining the avi- 
ation community, Bill Squires is a sure bet to 
succeed, regardless of the odds 


Allen Robb Stevenson II comes to the Acad- 
emy from Painted Post, New York That is just 
next door to Corning, New York and within easy

son. But, after trying out the varsity sports 
around here he chose the better life of times 
with "the boys," times with the girls, and rack. 
During the day and much of the night Robb 
studied International Security Affairs He started 
a little slow but a prode from Ye Old Ac Board 
made him jump up to the ment list Fornie, a 
nickname from those early times with the girls, 
has chosen to fly for the Navy. He will be spend-

RONALD McGinn barbieri 



From Albuquerque. New Mexico, came one of 
the greatest dispositions in the person of Ronald 
McGinn Barbieri Ron chose to major in English, 
his greatest interest, to better understand and to 
become closer to people He has been very 
active in the Academy's intramural sports pro- 
gram — especially enjoying company heavy- 
weight football, Ron is a religious and very sensi- 
tive individual He is always full of cheer and )oy 
to make others feel better. 

Bob overcame many physical handicaps (his 
two bionic legs and his bionic right arm) in his 
long four years. A Brooklyn boy. who first suf- 
fered cultural shock upon arriving in Annapolis, 
Bob spent almost all his afternoons bouncing 
basketballs and running the rocks and lifting 
weights and stopping trains and bending steel 
beams. He was a man of academics also, always 
a book in his hand (usually the TV guide or an 
Allistar MacClean novel) or under his pillow. 

Pursued by many women and a few older 
members of the clientele of weird Annapolis 
bars. Bob always had his hands full. Some of his 
more profound moments include unveiling a 
secret plan to destroy Washington and opening 
a deli in his locker. He always provided the 
Mazola for the parties Marriage and making it a 
pair flying for United are in Bob's plans. 

Clinging to the belief that "Texas is where it's 
at man'" BB brought his drawl and his interest in 
Oceanography with him from Austin, Bryan 
could be called a "late-bloomer," declining to 
exhibit the aggressive side of his nature until first 
class year and company soccer A sailor who 
managed to earn his letter on the USNA dingtiy 
squad, Bryan bore all the "what a bagger" com- 
ments well and even came with an occasional 
one-liner of his own rebuttal His interest in blue 
grass also raised a few eyebrows, but to each 
his own Bryan's image as a pseudo-hick dis- 
guised an inquisitive and unique intellect and his 
consistency sometimes was overlooked by 
those around him His boyhood dream of flying 
lasted until first class cruise (and the pre-com- 
missioning physicrl) when the bubble caught 
and headed him down the Mare Island-Idaho 
Falls pipeline Judging from the amount of cor- 
respondence with that soft-spoken southern 
belle in Lubbock, we don't anticipate Bryan sur- 
viving much beyond graduation, despite his

Pat came to Annapolis as a presidential 
appointee from Springfield, VA. He quickly 
became involved in the Navy football program 
as the starting defensive end on the plebe team. 
Just as he was about to break into a starting job 
on the varsity he broke his arm youngster year. 
Second class year brought a decision to give up 
football for academics which resulted in a more 
comfortable life as well as a more respectable 
QPR. Pat loves his oceanography but finds time 
for other loves like MIchele, the Shenandoah, 
photography and poetry Lack of sufficient 
funds introduced the "Caddy" (CVA-64) into 
the yard when the permission for first class cars 
was given. Navy air is Pat's service selection 
and later graduate work is definitely in his plans. 


Passing through NAPS on his way from 
Oklahoma to the Naval Academy, Tom went 
"hard charging" into the Academy's Profes- 
sional Training. "T. B." hails from a long line of 
Naval officers, including one who sailed with 
Teddy Roosevelt's Great White Fleet. Following 
in their footsteps, his love of the sea led him to 
the command of one of the Academy's yawls 
during second class year. A man who believes in 
outstanding performance as the criterion for 
success, Tom will undoubtedly be a real asset to 
any ship in the Surface Warfare community. 


Dave reported to the Academy as innocent 
and disciplined as the Quaker Country from 
whence he came However, he quickly gained 
control of the situation by joining, and eventually 
commanding, an elite group of baggers known 
affectionately to the Brigade as the D&B With 
this sturdy foundation in music Dave also was a 
steady performer for the NA-1 band Dave 
became known as "Hank" for his exploits as 
centerfielder for the championship company 
Softball team, he would have certainly been a 
star if he only had "one more year in the 
minors" When 1 c cars came into the yard, so 
came Hank and "old paint," a vintage Volvo that 
"ran like a puppy," Hank is headed for "taking 
the big towel" in July with his high school sweet- 
heart Always known for his quick wit and will- 
ingness to put out for Navy, we can only wish 
Hank the best as he heads down the path of all 
future bubbleheads, to Rickover's post graduate 
trade school

From a fishing village in San Pedro, California, 
Robin Lee Hood joined the class of 1975, Des- 
tined to join the Navy's Surface Line, he elected 
to pursue electrical engineering as his under- 
graduate major, fVlixing sailing and handball, he 
participated actively with his classmates in 
sports Not to be undone by the arduous 
demands of wires he found time to pursue many 
festive hours with Jan. A quiet individual, he has 
always been eager to help friends. Between tea 
and peanut butter sandwich breaks he has pur- 
sued his four years at the Academy with vigor. 
With graduation he will enter the fleet hoping to 
share his California sunshine with fellow offi- 


independently wealthy Gary Ingolo when not 
hustling freebies in crusty bars could always be 
found on hallway floors. Highlights in his four 
years include a fried egg in New Jersey's Royal 
Manor, a peculiar salad recipe and eating 1 /4 
lb. butter candy bars. Saturday mornings never 
passed without a "I learned my lesson." Lead- 
ing a charmed life (escaping unscathed from 
such boyish pranks as christening 6th wing 
walls or rolling on laundry bags on quiet Satur- 
day nights) seemed almost natural for this fun 
loving Chicagoan. Gary turned the game of 
gouge into a religion and a science. A three year 
fling in the wrestling lofts ended with his retire- 
ment forced upon through disease. He then 
turned his fecund mind to more esoteric affairs: 
studies in existentialism, zen, transcedental 
meditation and poetry. His professional yearning 
to open lounges and bars on carriers may be 
realized after a two year circuit through the 
nightclubs of Pensacola. Bottoms up. 


While the rest of his classmates tried to raise 
themselves to his "level of perception," Jake 
was content in broadcasting his essence from 
the secret recesses of the 8th wing basement 
over the FM airwaves of WRNV. Carl came here 
from Ohio, but now calls upstate New York 
home. Flirting with the varsity swim team 
throughout his career at Navy, and while the bri- 
gade exercised on historic Worden, one could 
usually find Carl recuperating from his many 
demanding activities in the rack. Once First 
Class year rolled around, Carl took advantage of 
his weekend freedom to follow his interests of 
skiing, partying and tooling around in his "Z." A 
charter member of Bachelor's Anonymous, we 
don't expect to see Carl near any churches for a 
while. Making no bones about his love of the 
hair-beard-'stache look, Carl quite naturally 
selected Navy Air as post graduate work.

Otherwise known as the last of George Car- 
lan's descriptive nouns in the "Heavy Seven" 
album (the one that doesn't even belong there'), 
claims to be from Anaheim, California, the origi- 
nal home of Disneyland. Chuck has found, to his 
dismay, where the real Disneyland is only after 
taking a vow of near chastity being a chem 
major and having a fantastic intellect. Chuck 
hedged his bets and, bought the ring (bullet) 
before he got in too deep. That's okay Chas, just 
because you're on a diet doesn't mean you 
can't look at a menu! The "Rock" being from 
sunny Cal also, realizes that having a mid for a 
mate and a Nuc Power selectee to boot, can 
hardly lose His classmates wish him the best of 
luck with his well planned future and hope to see 
him and his brood in the coming years. 


California dreamin's Lance S Martin left 
sunny shores and surf blondes for Maryland's 
eastern dnzzle and fog. Not to be undaunted 
Lance spent many times discussing astronomy, 
not usually pursued at the Naval Academy, Dig- 
ging Star Trek logic he galloped to study sys- 
tems engineering where he would spend long 
hours battling Navy's computers. Swimming and 
fencing have been his sports, though he 
engaged in occasional friendly wrestlmg 
matches. Now he hopes to pursue Nuclear 
Power with submarines in mind Cutlass and a 
couple girls figure to influence his immediate 
future, though his academic excellence will be 
remembered. We wish him the warmest future 
with the Navy blue and gold 


June of 1971 saw John Francis Moran joining

"Schmullz," originator of the "OA Method" 
and numerous other camp phrases stormed 
aboard USNA from Huntington, New York. Pos- 
sessed with boundless resources of energy and 
optimism. Chris somehow got the gouge on 
Plebe Year and brought along his own mixture 
of floor wax. It's been downhill ever since. If 
there's an unusual way of getting something 
ordinary done, you can bet it was Chris' idea. An 
aggressive intramural jock, Chris would rather 
play ball than eat. He has the dubious distinction 
of having spent 42% of his time at Navy in a van- 
ety of casts and his standing lifetime broken 
bone total is somewhere around twenty. Chris 
worked hard during the week and spent his 
weekends rallying home, shaving time off of the 
Annapolis to Long Island run. He will be heading 
for Pensacola after graduation, just as soon as 
he takes the big knee with his "high school 
sweetheart" Barb We'll see ya. 


Rick, the Quiet Man from Barrington, III., 
became noted early for his "nice guy" routine. 
Be it with ladies or parents, he seemed always to 
come out smelling like a rose and if he went 
home with you, it seemed as if your parents 
were sadder to see him go than they were you 
Always the man with the chow. Rick continually 
kept three or four channels open and his room 
was never barren of cupboards. "Schwartz" has 
done pretty well under the conduct system, 
except for that one incident when a famous 
uncle accidentally discovered an explosive situ- 
ation up behind his typewriter and under six 
blankets. Between the pool and the academic 
department he had little time for frivolity, but 
could still be counted on to lead the way when 
there were chicks involved. In fact, recent trips 
to Kentucky have not really been for horse races 
or bourbon He has won our greatest respect 
and admiration. 


Michael Beaty Rabideau, better known as 
"Rabbit" by his friends, hails from Pittsburg, 
Pennsylvania. Coming to the Naval Academy 
right from high school, he established himself as 
an outstanding swimmer on the swimming team. 
Other sports which interest him are waterpolo, 
scuba diving, and water skiing As you can see, 
Mike was born and raised around water He 
plans to enter the Naval Air community after 
graduation and from there, he will make his own 
future as a Naval officer. 


Steaming into the Naval Academy, from a 
small port town, north of Annapolis, called Balti- 
more, Marc was soon enslaved by the rigors of 
Plebe summer. Learning the lessons of leader- 
ship, each year, and taking pride in himself the 
Academy and the Naval Service, Marc earned 
the position of 21st Co. CDR during the fall set. 
The son of a college professor, Marc has kept 
up his family tradition of academic excellence, 
while he completed the requirements for a 
degree in Mechanical Engineering As an out- 
standing performer in leadership, professional- 
ism and engineering. Marc will be a vital member 
of our future Surface Navy, and will set the 
example for all of us to follow in our military 


Having never been south of Queens, A. J., 
better known by his classmates as "ACE," 
picked himself out of the streets of New York 
and found his way to USNA. A. J. reported for 
Plebe summer three days late, and has been 
behind ever since. His Plebe year QPR of 0.72 
made him choose a unique major (i.e. graduat- 
ing). During Plebe year he could have commit- 
ted himself to a life of hamburgers but a "short" 
swimmer set him straight,. He spent many an 
afternoon aqua-rocking in the instruction pool 
He must have had "rocks" in his head when he 
turned down a free trip to Colorado, and a trip to 
Florida to learn how to fly. He will be taking 
those "rocks" with him for good to fly for Navy. 


Russ hovered for one year at Western Wash-

Before the wind blew him eastward to crabtown 
on the bay Spot never permitted the demands 
of the academic department to interfere with his 
clean and jerking. His glistening white body 
must rank as one of the most rested in the Bri- 
gade Second class year brought a change in 
his major and his life. The purchase of a Fiat 1 24 
and the discovery of Nancy seemed to have a 
settling effect. However, when last sighted, 
Spock was high in the heavens of 4-4, not at all 
a bad place for a future helo pilot.

into the Naval Academy with the suave sophisti- 
cation that comes from one year of civilian col-

level of intellectual education" in the history

Mad dog has spent many board days at the 
Naval Academy — conduct boards, Ac boards 
and Apt. boards. Perhaps one of the tew "Triple 
Crown" winners to eventually graduate Jim tias 
smooth talked his way out of many close calls. 
Needless to say he has also talked his way into 
many a close call. Well known throughout the 
yard Jim has been on the most wanted list of 
many high ranking officers. One of the Dog's 
favorite CA's was rearranging cruise lists and 
duty sections, let it never be said he got a good 
deal. Lucky Tenuto's most memorable moment 
was being kidnapped youngster year. He relived 
that night every day for five weeks at main co.

roommates 1 /c year he has turned to more 
mundane habits, such as the theatre Advisory 
Park Antique Shows, and keg parties, Jim is now 
a member in good standing of the Schlitz foun- 
dation, living proof that you can teach an old 
Dog new tricks. About himself, Jim fias been 
quoted, in the words of his idol, "I can't wait till 
tomorrow cause I get better looking everyday," 


JVIogar opened a raw bar plebe summer and to

and he aggravated that situation on youngster

Jim came to the Naval Academy from Milwau- 
kee. Wisconsin ("Chief Oshkosh — the beer 
that made Milwaukee famous''^") and quickly 
acquired the label "Chowhound" for his habit of 
drowing up before Firsties during Plebe Sum- 
mer. With his trumpet in one fist, and a copy of 
Doc Severinsen's "Latest and Greatest" in the 
other, Chowhound could usually be found either 
diligently practicing to get as good as, if not bet- 
ter than. Doc, or inspiring one and all with his 
"ruptured turkey-trot" as he performed with the 
D & B during P-rades. Although a member of the 
silent minority, Jim's views on Navy Air were 
always outspoken. His plans for the future 
include a vacation at Pensacola and ultimately,

Ed "T.K." Firth. If he's not making one of those 
sure-handed defensive plays or rounding the 
bases on another hit, he can probably be found 
sitting behind his desk with a text and book of 
notes in front of him. In fact, Ed studies enough 
to have a 4 1 QPR. Even Ed's Corvette has trou- 
ble competing with the books for his time. Not- 
withstanding his frequently somber demeanor, 
Ed has amassed tremendous honors: two N- 
stars to date, never a single demerit, and always 
an A in aptitude and PE But Ed's sights are not 
limited by the Naval Academy walls — he is very 
anxious to apply his talents as a Naval Officer. 
We all know he will do well, especially if he 
keeps his elbow up 


Dlug, the man with the golden tongue, can 
hold his own in any intellectual situation. A true 
dirtball at heart, he could always be counted on 
to be the last one to formation and the first one 
in the chow line Never one to partake of the 
Mickey-mouse, he polished his shoes with a 
brick and chocolate bar, slept in his uniform and 
brushed off with his brasso rag Even though his 
grade point was not outstanding, he was smar- 
ter (?) than most as he overloaded each semes- 
ter. But what can you say about a guy who 
couldn't even find reverse on his own car. On 
the serious side, he is a hell of a good man with 
a lot of understanding for those people around 
him The fleet is definitely getting a fine, hard- 
working "Man" Happy trails to you.

Tom never had to work too hard for his grades 
but nevertheless, knew what hard work and ded- 
ication meant in an athletic career with the 
Mighty Mites. On the weekends, his trail up to 
New Jersey was clearly marked by all the empty 
Miller bottles. Whether it was sleeping, playing 
cards, or getting the gouge. Teeps was always a 
winner. His reading matenal was the finest in the 
brigade and always tiie most current issues. 
Tom. our best wishes go out to you and that 
beautiful blond from New Jersey. 


Walt, better known as "Flip" to his many 
friends, hails from the thriving community of 
New Canaan, Connecticut. Walt came straight 
from high school and made a speedy transition 
from high school stardom to the rigorous aca- 
demic and athletic world at the Academy. 
Because Walt had such fun as a plebe under the 
guidance of a very imaginative and thoughtful 
second class, he thought he would give it a go 
for the full four year sentence. Because Walt 
validated just about everything but study hour, 
as time passed he proved himself to be an aca- 
demic whiz at anything from Advanced Engine 
Math and Computers to those always easy pro- 
fessional courses He also made a fine contrib- 
ution to company intramurals, being both a bas- 
ketball and Softball stalwart when the going got 
tough. Known for his good hands in catching 
intramural balls of all sorts and in also catching 
as many good deals as possible, Walt eased his 
way to select Nuclear Power for his command- 
studded future upon graduation. Although 
Admiral Rickover had him in his back pocket all 
the time, Walt kept his future in doubt even to his 
closest confidants. He should make a tine 
Nuclear Power Officer if he can adjust to the dim 
lights and long hours.

James Oral Hubbard arrived at USNA straight 
from the thriving metropolis of Lathrop, Mis- 
souri, and the battlefields of Wentworth Acad- 
emy from where his uncanny ability to spout out 
all the "Laws of the Navy" in a minimum of time 
probably originated Not stopping there, he 
applied his extraordinary mental prowess in the 
field of academics where he excelled 
unbounded until the first 4 weeks' grade report 
came out Plebe year. Nothing could get in his 
way when "Hubs" put his mind to something, 
including such curiosities as the "Axe Board" 
and other "unmentionable boards." Always 
known to be present when a parly was immi- 
nent, "Hubs" could always be found with a 
glass of "spirits" in one hand and a beautiful 
chick in the other. His impeccable taste in 
women and merriment is also evident in his taste 
in cars and aircraft, a preference when carried 
over to the fleet will offer Naval Aviation an out- 
standing addition to its ranks. 


From the sunny skies of California to the 
South Carolina coast, Kerry can be found pour- 
ing out his heart and his (Dad's?) money to a 
plethora of beautiful girls. Actually, unless you 
are female and good-looking it is hard to get to 
know Kerry unless you happen to be in one of 
three places: 1) Telephone in Mrs. "M's" office, 
2) Underneath his pillow and blanket or 3) At the 
"Sub" races on hospital PT Kerry has consist- 
ently held the defending champion's title to 
"rack" king, but nonetheless has "analytically 
managed" his way through 4 years of academ- 
ics with only 2 black "N" letters Anyway, who 
could want to go to Greece on a carrier when 
you can go to Alaska on an LPD'' 

We're all confident that he will "Kerry" on in 
the finest naval tradition at Pensacola (Should 
his XKE make it that far) unless blown out of the 
air by his dual nostril exhaust.

Neither ram nor snow, hail nor sleet could 
keep this "SUPERMAN" from his appointed run 
for fun Harry could be seen in Blue and Gold at 
every football and basketball game leading the 
Brigade in passing around his female counter- 
parts - . except for the time when he miscalcu- 
lated a landing, coming down on the hardest 
and safest spot, his head Har's mid career did 
not stop here Grades continued to be a high- 
light even with those three to five hour weight- 
lifting sessions and an occasional extra morning 
liberty before quarters. Bowling became a side- 
line event to the striper libs, which caused Har to 
really find himself in some of the strangest situa- 
tions "Love those Frat parties " Harry will best 
be remembered for his single most interesting 
accomplishment of going from the heaviest man 
on the Gym team (at 1 80) to the lightest (at 1 25) 
during youngster year. On Har's light side, he 
was an excellent writer of letters to his female 
pen pals while in a good mood, or was that lying 
in a bed nude'' 


Having turned down a sports scholarship to 
Dartmouth, Fran, or "Mac" as he is known 
locally, came to the Academy with illusions of 
grandeur. Upon arriving he decided to take on 
the challenges of Varsity Baseball only to have 
this endeavor cut short after the mysterious dis- 
appearance of his favorite baseball mitt Aca- 
demics proved to be another rude awakening for 
Mac with a "booming" QPR his first semester 
Plebe Year Not easily discouraged and being a 
fierce competitor, he fought his way back to dis- 
tinction making the merits list during second 
class year. Hampered by a permanent' case of 
bad luck, his specialties included consistently 
late registration times and an affection for 400 
level courses. First class year Fran was able to 
put leadership skills to use as Co. Cdr A few 
good summers on our Navy's steamers gave 
him his sea legs, and convinced him the pride of 
the Corps was to be his choice. Fran's sincerity 
and loyalty are sure to leave an impression as 
big as the man himself. 


Joel came to the Academy from a multitude of 
homes having beaten a bum rap (^) of hay fever. 
As a Navy Junior. Joel was well acquainted with 
the seafaring life and traditions of the service. A 
strict adherence to regulations and a responsi- 
ble attitude toward academics quickly estab- 
lished him as "One of the few" After a near 
miss in Naval Architecture, he quickly altered 
course to the promising major of Oceanogra- 
phy. His performance 3rd and 2nd class years 
led him to his position 1 st class year as Baft. 
Ops Officer. Joel's future abounds in an A-6 
Squadron, via marriage to an Indiana Miss, and 
a 6 month tour at the Basic School. 


John Martin Mauthe packed his bags in Mar- 
ietta, Georgia, and headed north to Mother "B." 
After a little H S. Rote, his many talents came to 
light through the four years. John Martin kept 
the Brigade waves alive by making WRNV-AM 
into WRNV-FM; and "Dills" was just honky 
enough to keep up with the company under- 
ground. His businessman actions not only won 
the hearts of a few women, but kept everyone on 
their toes 24 hours a day. As ole Grandad would 
say, "Gotta get up before the chickens to get 
ahead of him" And so off to Pensacola Dills 
goes to fly those helos for the Navy, of course. 


"Buddy," the old man of the company, comes 
from the deep south, as can be easily seen by 
his sunburned neck. Buddy always carries a 
Confederate Flag with him and dreams of com- 
mand of an ironclad. Never at a loss for words, 
he could always think of a story or joke to tell. 
His exploits with the O-Course are well known, 
and he won the "Triple Crown" more than once. 
One morning his room was inspected and the 
Battalion Officer couldn't decide whether Buddy 
was running a delicatessen, liquor store or fire- 
works factory. The bridge of a destroyer is Bud- 
dy's future home after he attends to some long 
overdue business with a certain southern belle 
in Virginia.

The baby gorilla, able to snow everyone in 
Bancroft Hall Plebe Summer through second

for his efforts However, he didn't fare so well 
with the Academic Dept. as was evidenced by 
his constant battle with "the 2 0" Even though 
he had to fight to keep off the love handles, he

C C came to the shores of the Severn after 
detours to Duke University and the University of 
Nebraska and therefore naturally became the 
sage of the company. C. C. started early with his 
talent for impressing his seniors by getting in 
good with a firstie who had an admiral for a 
father. Youngster Year the Head set a new 
record for taking a navigation final and invented 
a new method of plotting C. C 's natural leader- 
ship qualities were evident as he became Head 
Ranger and company financial manager He 
also led the Ranger over the wall gang to Dede's 
office on 4-1 . C. C. made history by successfully 
appealing a decision of the AC Board and found 
himself to be an ex-patriot Ranger with four 
years of studying to do in one Surface line will 
never be the same once the Head takes over 


Ken stomped into the Naval Academy with a 
football under one arm and a few girls under the 
other. He managed to drop the former but did he 
ever hold on to his share of the latter He has to 
be the best thing that has happened to Navy 
from Chillicothe, Ohio, since Tecumseh. Without 
a doubt, beer or no beer, Kabob could make 
anybody laugh at his stories. His quick wit and 
prowess as the company impersonator were 
second to none. As one of the 3 black sheep of 
the Systems Eng. Dept., he led the other two 
through the darkest hours. He was always will- 
ing to get up and "do it before quarters." This 
hell raiser is full of life and Navy Air will reach 
new heights with Ken flying along. 


Glenn prepped at Admiral Farragut In order to 
become an integral member of the Blue Zoo 
Saying good-bye to New Eagle, Pennsylvania 
and Barb, Gang took up the studies of miden- 
gine Fiats, the sports pages, and Roscoe Pound. 
A disciple of Alton and Bobbie, Gang learned his 
lessons well, so he and Fingers were company 
prank reps in the wee hours An advocate of the 
inverse study law for Poll Sci, and Navy Air, 
Glenn kept gravy on his cum. and his 20/20 

He was a mainstay of Ranger Rallies, and was 
known for his affinity to sleeping in bath tubs 
around the magic hour 

Never one to get down on all the Navy good

The Buzzard should have had plenty 1o do 
during his career on the banks of the Severn, 
but throughout 4 years of choir and an Aeros- 
pace Engineering Major, he always managed to 
have time for what he wanted to do After a 
Plebe Year which saw his imitation of a MK 56 
Gun Fire Director become famous, Speer could 
usually be found in the wardroom or on the way 
to Buzzy's He was a member of the early to bed 
set, yet no one has discovered his secret of 
always having homework done a couple of days 
early If he could bottle that secret, Speer could 
have retired before he graduated. 


Les came to Canoe U from the great waterless 
desert of Arizona. No one really understands 
why the Fox decided to try Navy, as his element 
IS definitely not water. It has been a great and 
trying effort for Les, with all the modern music 
buffs around, to try and to keep that home-style 
country music alive, so he has spent much of his 
time as the proclaimed Wardroom King. None- 
theless, he has still managed to make the 
grades, and may even take a weekend some 
day Only one thing remains for him to do 
besides getting that golden Morgan in the sky, 
and that is to try living underwater for months at 
a time. Lots of luck with the subs, Les' 


Plebe Year had to have been Phil's most stel- 
lar year. There can be no better way to start it off 
than by forcing down 75 Brussels sprouts into 
one's iron stomach. COMRACKLANT or "Buzz 
Top" as he was usually called, even managed to 
come up with an occasional wise-crack such as, 
"Sir, if you don't know, I'm not going to tell 
you" Phil has decided to make mud stomping 
with the grunts his career, maybe all the war 
games and Napoleon books will eventually 
come in handy! 


Fingers skated into Annapolis from East Bos- 
ton, Mass Though an interpreter was needed 
for his Boston accent, all evidence points to the 
fact that he was an all around athlete and stu- 
dent. In his senior year as quarterback, he led 
Boston Latin to ten consecutive victories. (From 
the bench.) He greatly disappointed Coach For- 
zano when he decided to play Varsity Hockey 
vice Football. An academic wizard. Fingers had 
little trouble with Rocket Rollin's Quant course 
and his experiments were all "picture perfect." 
Carrying a lofty 3.8 avg. Fast Frankie will 
undoubtedly get into med school, hopefully Har- 
vard. As a prerequ'site the med school Frank 
goes to will have to have unlimited gouge, 
because without gouge he couldn't tie his own 
shoe Even though Frank will probably graduate 
with honors, only a fool would let him "cut" on 
them (Unless he had the gouge and he proba- 
bly will.) 


Jimmy had a rough lime trying to accustom 
himself to Mother B and her many subtleties. It 
seemed as if the academic community and the 
good ole Class of '73 had it in for Jim However, 
Youngster Year was like a new sunrise and 
brought many wonderful things, like a pretty co- 
ed from Mary Washington, by the name of Mary 
Kay As life at USNA continued to improve, Jim 
found himself a paper pusher on Batt Staff, a job 
I'm sure he'll cherish in his mind forever Since 
so much looked good Mo Jim pnor to service 
selection night, the right decision was hard to 
make. Navy Air and surface line, however, were 
running neck and neck. Go Navy — Beat Air 
Force or else. 


David drifted into the confines of the Naval 
Academy from nearby Manasquan, N.J. The 
rigors of Plebe Year and the crew coach's morn- 
ing and afternoon workouts turned the pudgy 
gentle giant into one of the crew team's strong- 
est and most dynamic captains. David picked 
the Academy's Pre-med Major as his field of 
study and hopes to row up to the University of 
Vermont after graduation Although Dave spent 
a considerable amount of time with his athletics 
and academics, his main enjoyment was in his 
duties as Company Drill Representative second 
class year Dave mixed in 47 early morning drill 
periods with his morning crew workouts. His 
only regret is that there weren't enough Forres-

Fred holds the distinction of being the first 
"Ranger" to bite the bullet for marital bliss A 
lust for learning and great motivation on the

Uprooted from Cherry Hill, N J , Charlie, not 
Chuck, decided to start his own long line of tra- 
dition rather than follow in another's footsteps. It 
was a long road for many, but Charlie decided to 
shorten it by validation of certain freshman year 
courses, only to his own disdain. He quickly 
recovered though, from the likes of a certain 
Physics Prof and soon found himself at home 
with a 3,0 and Marine Engineering. Even on 
Weekend, I'm told by his twin brother, he arrived 
home with a slide rule in one hand, and a HP-35 
in the other. If that wasn't enough, he'd derive 
the rest for ya. Unlike many who got away with 
murder, Mahon as typical, was one for one as

mountable work required from him as a Ivlath

Chuck left Cleveland, a pretty girl, and an 
impressive grappling record to offer his nnind, 
body, and soul to Navy. Collegiate wrestling 
proved too time consuming and interfered with 
the social life he has become known for. Being 
one of the three black sheep of the Systems 
Engineering Department, he never let academ- 
ics cramp his style Chuck's interpretation of the 
Reg Book made him the most popular Co. Sub- 
CDR in Naval Academy History. Chuck's over- 
the-wall adventures compare to Houdmi, Papil- 
lion, and Evel Knievel at their best. With an eye 
for women, a nose for a party, and more luck 
than an Irish Leprechaun, Chuck will be a valua- 
ble asset to the Naval Aviation Community. 


From the open spaces of sunny Texas to the 
confines of Bancroft came Kevin Nietmann This 
quiet radical of the Ranger Corps always 
seemed to bring us back to reality from the many 
Academy rules and regulations. As company 
intellectual, he demonstrated that even Chemis- 
try can be fun. C) The Bancroft campers also 
learned from Kevin that pneumonia can even be 
found on tile floors. A star soccer player, he led 
23 to an outstanding 4 win season' After a long 
summer with the New Zealand Navy, Kevin has 
decided to visit Admiral Rickover and spend the

Joseph Norte hailed the Naval Academy from 
Readlyn, Iowa with only one goal in mind, to do 
his best in everything. He tried. His never ending 
quest for excellence started Plebe Year with his 
fine academic showing and reached its epitome 
when he scored the highest grade in the depart- 
ment in third semester Fluids. Joe showed his 
athletic prowess as a member of the 1 50 lb foot- 
ball team and on his skiing weekends Youngster 
Year Joe combined both academics and ath- 
letic skills in becoming one of the finest AlP 
pilots among the first class midshipmen Joe 
could be seen on his numerous second class 
weekends cheering on the Academy's hockey 
team in Baltimore with Ronnie, his June Week 
bride to be. Joe's secret to success so far has 
been in sacrificing his sleep to accomplish his 
numerous goals. 


Joe, one of the endangered species from 
NAPS, is a man with a flair for words, a nose for 
gouge and an addiction to cokes. Not one to be 
cramped by regulations he wasted no time in 
accumulating 505 demos for such heinous 
crimes as slouching in Chapel and smiling. He 
later moved up in the world to over the wall and 
his 3rd black N, A Management Ma|or who used 
what he learned wisely, Joe went through a van, 
cycle and Jag XKE within a year and now finds 
himself $14,000 in the hole. 

A candidate for anchor man, he is still trying 
to prove his theory that grades are inversely pro- 
portional to the amount of studying done Athlet- 
ically, Joe was one of Virginia's finest grapplers 
as a high schooler and after a brief career at 
Navy felt the pursuit of academics and the fairer 
sex was more in order. Upon graduation he 
plans on heading south to Annapolis of the air.

Boasting himself as the hottest thing from

of the Severn Not finding USNA the tropical isle 
he would have liked, Tolly always made the most 
of any situation. Aside from being one of the

As one of the leading citizens of Massapequa, 
Long Island, Bill came to Annapolis with high 
hopes of leading Navy Football to new heights of 
glory. But he soon decided that football didn't 
provide enough of a challenge for his many tal- 
ents, and left the team to concentrate solely on 
dazzling the management world and making 
maximum use of liberty time. As a noted song- 
writer and composer, Lurp wrote many fine 
blues songs and gave predawn concerts on the 
third wing terrace while doing penance for being 
a charter member of the Ranger over-the-wall 
gang. As Lurp goes off to drive airplanes, we 
can only hope that his copilot appreciates his 
unique version of the alphabet and his fine sing- 
ing voice. 


Coming to USNA from the Naval Academy 
Prep School, Frank was to become one of the 
few "professional" Rangers Never one of the 
academic giants of the company, Frank instead 
turned his attention to company sports and 
activities, where his personality and determina- 
tion led him to many roles of leadership and 
responsibility. He was always a most desired 
roommate, for the addition of "that sound sys- 
tem" was added incentive. Get prepared Navy

Some call him C. J the D.J ; others call him 
the Phantom Member of 23; the girls call him all 
the time Hailing from "the citrus capital of the 
world," Lakeland, Florida, C. J. started Plebe 
Summer out right by not being able to say his 
room was all turned out without having to try it 
two or three times But in later times he finally 
got it down Football was his game, but it wasn't

had the baddest load on the road. Right on and 
I'm gone.

Hoyle Homes Daniels III began his naval 
career a year earlier than his classmates, enter- 
ing the Naval Academy Prep School after gradu- 
ation from Palisade's High. After a year of prac- 
tice on the SAT's he finally made it to the place 
of his dreams — USNA. Hoyle continued to 
work diligently on his studies all during his Plebe 
Year. It was always a treat to eat at Hoyle's table 
as a Plebe, as he had many second class that 
always took care of him and waited for his rates 
patiently. Having been known for his unique, 
radiant personality, he acquired many lasting 
friendships during his stay. Hoyle, alias "good- 
looking", "Archie", "Danny", "Tiger", and 
"Lover", was a real woman's man all four years 
as he always took them to the most extravagant 
spots to eat out. Hoyle showed his true colors 
returning from first class cruise with his new 
styled hair and the latest in boggy T-shirts. Yes, 
Hoyle has the makings of a true professional

Steve was born with soccer shoes on in an old 
bottle in a Connecticut trash dump. At one time 
a scout, "Euell" even tried to start a beaver 
patrol at the Academy. It even took a "Bear" to 
make him say uncle. 

At school, he has excelled in engineering 
through intravenous feeding of gouge and main- 
tained a passing grade in P.T. He has decided 
he wants "nukey" for the future and will get it. 

10 nice things about Steve; he once had a 
date, he once folded with a full boat in draw, he 
never wears brown shoes with a blue suit, he 
once told a funny joke, he once dated a girl, he

Donny, also known as "The Mug," came to 
Navy with dozens of stories which confirmed the 
fact that civilization has yet to reach Norlina, 
North Carolina. A born leader with a devious 
mind, Donny naturally assumed the role of 
shower party rep, room war rep, and small muni- 
tions technician. Throughout his career in Fun 
21 , Loose Deuce, and Hard Core 24, Donny was 
a firm believer in discipline, especially in its 
administration Better than most as an academi- 
cian, he usually managed to do better than he 
deserved although long weekends eluded him 
Donny, a real ladies' man, progressed from 
Plebe Tea Fights, where he broke the hearts of 
many personable young ladies, to exciting 
adventures in a visit to Pensacola before he 
finally centered his attentions on a lass from 
Steeltown, USA. Apparently forsaking the 
friendly skies of Pensacola for Nuclear power, 
"Mug" is sure to carry his diligence and profes- 
sionalism into a rewarding career as a Naval

The transition from the blue-black waters of 
the Pacific to the green waters of the Chesa- 
peake had a profound effect on Gaf. In 4 years 
he rose fronn company anchor man to academic 
slash. During his 1 /c year he also developed a 
crush on the "0" club. He could always be 
found there from 1515 every Friday to 1827 
Sunday (Duty excepting). The Academy pro- 
vided a few tough obstacles for Gaf but he came 
through to become a fine Marine Officer. 


Stanleh, as he is affectionately called by his 
other half, has continued to amaze everyone 
here by not studying on a weekend since Plebe 
Year and still survive. The major reason for this 
outstanding record is his drinking buddy, (dou- 
bles as his fianc6) Betsy Also, he has a talent 
for getting along well with his professors. 

His other main love is consuming anything 
with a certain derivative of a hydro-carbon con- 
tained within it. Stan, being a man for setting 
records, has logged more time in O Clubs than 
any person alive under 30 This feat may have 
something to do with his last record of breaking 
an engagement more times than a razorback 
has ridges. 

Before finishing this summary, his ability in 
sports should be mentioned. Favorite Foods: 
burgers, clams, Favorite Team: Cards, Favorite 
Sport: baseball. 


Dennis, hailing from Seven Hills, Ohio, came 
to Annapolis via Miami University determined to 
turn the Navy upside down. Taking a few spins 
himself, he's nevertheless managed to keep his 
head above water; in more ways than one. A 
faithful follower of the motto: "If the minimum 
wasn't good enough, it couldn't be the mini- 
mum," Galicks finally settled back on his strong 
COPR after second class year with no worries 
about graduating in '75 A Batt Wrestler and 
winter heavyweighter, Galicks enjoyed four Bri- 
gade Championships during his stay at the 
Academy. Always known for his easygoing 
nature, Dennis will be a welcome addition to his 
chosen field of Surface Line. 


Paul Harar came to Annapolis from the windy 
city of Chicago, III. In assuming his role at Canoe 
U he was the only Plebe to earn the rank of Mid- 
shipman Fifth Class. During his four years at the 
Academy, Paul distinguished himself in almost 
everything he challenged, from learning literally, 
how to run through the obstacle course to mas- 
tering the art of changing step in close order 
drill. Athletically, Paul donated his body to intra- 
mural sports, especially fieldball. He became a 
starter in intramural crew and volleyball when he 
became a "Firstie." Scholastically, Paul stood 
above his classmates in his major of Manage- 
ment which he plans to utilize in Nuclear Power 
The Nuclear Navy will eventually receive a fine 
asset when Paul (Hip, Hip) hits the fleet. 


David B. Gough more commonly known as 
the "Gouge" not because he has it, but for his 
efforts in finding it. Being one of the great math- 
ematical geniuses of the Brigade, he has induc- 
tively proven a new technique of studying. By 
assuming that he has a free period before his 
exam, he begins resting his mind the night 
before with one of the great science fiction nov- 
els of all time. He then very carefully calculates 
by "Mathematical Analysis" how much time in 
the rack is needed for a passing grade. 

His home, which, by the way is 1 3 miles away 
in a town called Odenton has proven to be a 
great help to the company More often referred 
to as Gouge's Car Lot, his house has become 
one of the "pit-stops" on.your way out of the 7 
mile limit. 

Dip, (as he is known by his family) has many 
hobbies. One of his favorites is his taste for fine 
food An expert in the preparation and eating of 
popcorn and hotdogs, he has tried in the past 3 
years to become even better at this hobby. At 
times he even travels to the Ramada Inn with his 
favorite Miss Bar B. Doll for a $21 dinner, and a 
good time on the town. Other pastimes include 
the proper methods of walking on crutches, driv- 
ing to Hampton-Roads in his T-bird, and his abil- 
ity to see how late he can turn in assignments 
and still receive credit. 


Well-read Steve, whose voluminous magazine 
subscriptions could put any dentist's office to 
shame, was always ready to share his individu- 
ally acute views on any topic with those of us 
less refined A definite high-roller in the fashions 
department, Steve was a charter member of the 
O Club singles set, never one to turn down a 
social drink now and then, or even a good knee- 
dance His sophisticated style, towehng height, 
and calculated speech placed him no more 
appropriately than in the rack, snoring; again, 
better, and louder, than most. 

An Engineer and Surface Liner to the end, 
Steve will no doubt take the Navy by the stern 
and show all of us that worldliness is next to

Hailing from the land of 10.000 lakes, Rick 
was Coach Higgin's number one draft choice for 
the sub squad Blazing a star-studded path 
through the Academy's swimming program, 
"Aquarock" could never quite gain the attention 
of the VDT/SEAL recruiters 

An intramural jock from day one, Toad could

Coming from Wakefield. Nebraska, to see the 
ocean. Kliner decided to stay around for a while. 
Always the life of the party because he was the 
party. Kliner could always be counted in on any 
activity. If he wasn't out with the boys on a 
weekend you could count on him to be working 
out. watctiing sports on the tube, reading about 
sports, or just talking about sports, truly a jock's 
jock. After studying Oceanography for three 
years Kliner found that the human stomach is 
incompatible with the Surface Navy so he had to

Dennis, with his down home drawl, sauntered 
to the Boat School from the Ohio River tX)ttoms 
of Clarksville, Indiana, four years ago with the

Tom came to us after going to three years of 
college at the University of Illinois, which earned 
him the position of company old-man and the 
title of "Pops," Never letting academics get in 
the way of his education, Pops spent four years 
proving he could be just as dumb as the rest of 
us Pops helped to nft our morale by keeping a 
collection of interesting reading material for the 
strong at heart and a sense of humor to match 
A true lifer. Pops had to be a steamer. 


Mack paddled his way into this illustrious insti- 
tution on the coat-tails of the NAAA machine. 
After demolishing all competition in northern Vir- 
ginia, Jamie decided to impress Navy's oppo- 
nents with his swimming prowess. An "N'"" was 
the culmination of two years of burning holes in 
the water of the natatorium 

As a proteg6 to King Midas, the "Turkey" 
(short drumsticks and all) could usually be found 
balancing his checkbook or just gloating over 
his latest dividend statement He was soon wel- 
comed to the poorhouse, however, when he 
became owner of one white Corvette, 

A true believer in the "hard-to-get" theorem 
of handling young ladies, Mack takes care not to 
allow too much of a good thing to accumulate in 
one place 

Destined to be a "Pork Chop." Jamie is 
assured of a bright future in the Navy. Our sup- 
plies couldn't be in safer hands. 


From the coal dust of West Virginia came the 
tall, bearded man we learned to call Mete-a-rom 
or Metzer for short He started off being con- 
scious of time with being late for Plebe Summer, 
not to mention 2/c year at Pittsburgh and the 
"0" Club incident. Academics have never been 
a problem with Metzer; he has always been one 
of the leading Mental Midgets. He even selected 
Marine Engineering and Nuc Power for a future, 
I guess that's because "They do it deeper!" His 
ability to hold liquor plus his true editorial talents 
in letter writing have held"the young lovelies plus 
the company in awe. We can't forget the strange 
places he finds to sleep during parties or the 
strange foods he munches on. We always think 
of Metzer when we hear Johnny Denver's 
"Country Roads, Take Me Home"

Tom (alias "Too Cool." alias "Phantom") 
came to Navy from LA. after tfiat "other place" 
failed to pick him up in time Math became his 
ma|or — and getting through it was his game 
Such profs as Count Dracula and Spitt'n Sam 
will always be remembered But besides aca- 
demics, Tom derived gobs of pleasure from 
Navy drowning and the mile cough 

"But what about women'?" you wonder — so 
do we. There is the one in DO, the one in ADMN, 
the two in DC, the three in Penn, the four . . . 
This kind of man needs a silver fvlonte Carlo. 

His future looks as bright as the past he leaves 

Jim. better known to all as "Ski," came to us 
from Bethpage, Long Island, New Yawk. Plebe 
Year found him engrossed in his duties as the 
company's resident SI 101 Computer Program- 
ming Technician. Youngster Year will always be 
a memorable one for Ski. Always a party man. 
Ski participated in the "Great Wardroom Christ- 
mas Party" of the 2nd Company This resulted 
in a couple of months to think about things, 
especially about a young lovely he met in the 
line of duty as Trident Calendar Sales Manager 
Ski's motto was "Would they give you liberty if 
they wanted you to stay"?" And if he didn't have 
liberty there was always the special request chit 
to get out in town to see his honey. Jim is head- 
ing for a honeymoon and the Surface Navy after 

Kip came storming north from the great nation 
of Texas four years ago to meet the challenge of 
the Naval Academy, and as is usually the case, 
he found it Since that lime the most accurate 
description of our only cowboy is "involved." 
His aspirations as a football player were cut 
short by a knee injury Plebe Year, but he came 
back second class year to earn a starting spot 
and his Navy "N" for the 150's. Six weeks in a 
cast after a second knee injury in the Army 
Game, however, convinced him that Navy Air 
was more important than playing, so he turned 
in his pads for a coaching spot first class year. 
Athletics was but one of his activities as he has 
carried a double major — Oceanography and 
Women. The former presented no problem as 
Kip could always be founa on the Sup's List, and 
his success with the fairer sex is unquestioned. 
His roommate insists that he kept a file with pic-

his success in either field

A native of "Zoomie" country USA., Paul 
chose the "Un-college" over his next door

plishments include Vice-president of Catholic

"Pap" found his true love early in his first 
class year — a cute little copper-toned Capri. 
The question now is "Will the Capri's position be 
usurped by an F-1 4 in Pensacola?" 


THE PONDO, little more really need be said. 
He sauntered in from Oregon to enjoy the relax- 
ing atmosphere and good times only USNA can 
provide. A dedicated nightowl, Jim consistently 
made careful use of classroom time so that he 
would be fresh for study hour — dozing in the 
wardroom is poor form. His distaste for formality 
foiled the Academic Board's hope more than 
once. This might require a skipped poker game 
or less moon study, but he always came 
through. Chasing anchors is interesting anyway. 
So after four years, relaxed and wiping the sleep 
from his eyes, Pondo departed many friends 
with a wife and an Ensign's stripe.

Dick will always be remembered by his unfail- 
irng academic perseverance, a constant downhill 
struggle since his first 4 week 3,0 A connois- 
seur of Dutch Cheese and endless consumer of 
coffee, Dick, with his cup in hand, could always 
be found somewhere enroute to the wardroom 

A very physically expressive speaker, Dick 
was available at any time to offer his critical 
comments and valuable suggestions concerning 
our life in the hall. Frequent trips to somewhere 
near Philly occupied his time and productive 
weekday mental condition 

Truly astonishing was his professional knowl- 
edge of anything nautical. Anything! This, along 
with his personality and character can only indi- 
cate that he will one day succeed in the Surface 
Fleet as a professional officer and human per- 


"ROGS" came to the University of Navy from 
Osseo, Wisconsin, for two reasons, to play bas- 
ketball and to fly jets. Little did he know that 
being a naval officer was a part of it. He finally 
realized this at 061 8 the first day of second class 
year, when he made the big decision to turn in 
his chit, only to change his mind (once again) to 
stay with the boys for 7 more years Rogs kept 
well informed of all the big news outside the 
walls by reading the Tn-County News, sharing 
the more interesting items with us. Known for his 
pranks and sense of humor. Steve worked hard 
at a "useless" major — Oceanography — and 
believed that "only a mediocre person is always 
at his best," Not willing to wait for Pensacola, 
Steve spent 2 months at Mam Office for com- 
manding his "Tomcat" and earned his Black 
"N," Always one of the boys, Rogs with his 
"wild imagination" has all of the quals for the jet 
jockey type. 


David Simon came to the Naval Academy to 
play sports as his previous athletic endeavors 
include football, track, cross-country, fencing, 
boxing, wrestling, bowling, tennis, billiards, table 
tennis, street fighting, handball, squash and 
even croquet Academically speaking, Dave 
belonged to the true image of the 24th Co Men- 
tal Midgets somehow just missing the Academic 
Board all four years. Dave's dynamic personality 
provided him with many lasting friendships 
around the Academy, Yet many unique aspects 
he does have, as he is often seen walking in the 
halls in his famous shoes, black socks, and not 
much else, later in the evening. On the other 
hand Dave is well read on those unmentionable 
subjects which do not include politics and news- 
papers His true specialties can be seen by his 
hard work with the shot put which has made him 
a proud wearer of his N-starred sweater and last 
but equally important and even 10 times as 
beautiful as the shot is his devotion to Jean, that 
lovely girl from Pitt. 


"Tus" made his way to Canoe U from the 
woods of western Maryland. His easy-going 
nature and continuous "shit-eater" earned him 
the nickname of "Loose Tus" from the start. Not 
a stickler for academics — 2 gravy in Manage- 
ment — Tus devoted his time to sports — in the 
boxing ring and in the halls of Mother "B." 
Shower parties, shaving cream fights, and gen- 
eral rowdiness constituted his nightly routine 
Tus's rowdiness was only surpassed by his per- 
severance in boxing His fast hands and fancy 
footwork quelled opponents and won him a Bri- 
gade Championship as well as good times with 3 
O A.O 's Tus IS noted for his taste in music

he works well with people (Yes. he's a greaser)

Somewhat of an intellectual, considering his 3.0 
average while studying an hour a week, he has 
the distinction of charging more books on his 
account than anyone else at the Academy, but

Proud owner of a 260-Z which lugged him 
across country last summer, he divides his time

has a quiet side, enjoying hiking, hunting, and 
the outdoors where he spends a lot of his Christ- 
mas and summer free time He has chosen to fly

Walls never bothered Finn. Some of his closest 
friends thought he was a commuter. Among his

Bob came to the Naval Academy from a beau-

During his career here, he earned the nickname

tion. Always a rallier, he spent many hours par-

as a great Naval Tactician. He had plenty of time

made life easier at USNA, I thank you. I'm very 
thankful for Sandy We have come a long way

are so many others, I thank them all, but, most 
important, I thank God.

Well. George, in spite of everything, here we 
are on the good side of graduation (who'd have 
thunk It possible') Fond of fast cars, life, and 
women. Chinko is. in short, a typical young citi- 
zen of the "Blue Zoo" He is Ukranian and 
bound to let everyone know it. And not only has 
he been Visco's roomie for four years (Good 
God'), he has thru thick and thin, been an avid 
Vikings' fan ("You wanna put money on if"). 
Indeed, many and wondrous are this good- 
natured chap's talents — he walks, he talks 
(God, does he'), he sleeps; truly an amazing 
person, Chinko is going into aviation — how 
appropriate' His head's been in the clouds for 
years anyway. George, you ain't no rose, but, 
then, you're no chrysanthemum either' 


Well. Den. after rooming with you for over 
three years, you'll be at Nuclear Power School, 
while I'm at Pensacola, 3000 miles away, I'll be 
hard-pressed to find someone else with whom 
I've shared so many interests, and to find such a 
genuine friend will be impossible. I'll always 
remember you for Gymnastics, your trips to 
Bethesda, and Karen, the Grateful Dead, and 
rock concerts It is hard to believe that four years 
have gone by already, and that we'll finally grad- 
uate. Good luck at Nuclear Power School I only 
wish that I could go with you — I'm sorry Hyman 
didn't see it that way. too, I hope that you and 
Karen will be happy always, in whatever your 
future plans are. Thanks for helping me get 
through here I needed it Take care. Tom

his many academic achievements, you'd hardly 
suspect that my perennial task over the past four 
years has been to remind him that his long-lost 
pencil was indeed behind his ear. Stories of his 
money-recording book, with its repeated 
"penny lost, penny found" entries, have made 
old Scrooge himself roll with laughter in his 
grave. But, invariably, he has proven himself a 
stout friend, one ready to help with a ten or a

is off to him in hopes that he will achieve the 
path to greatness which his mentor and hero, 
the long-suffering Beethoven, once rode, but 
odds are it won't be in his '62 Pontiac. "Ya

Always with a cheery disposition, Dels came 
to the Boat School on the Severn from Trenton, 
New Jersey via NAPS, bringing along his bad 
knees and a determination to succeed. He 
excelled as a regular starter on the rack team

his true love was General Engineering; solving

go — hitching home to Jersey to his woman and 
his other love — his Vette. David must like the 
Mickey Mouse discipline of Mother B because 
come June Week he will be signing up for five

will put all his hard work into Marine Air (the 
lesser of two evils).

Our resident super-jock, Paul is equally at 
home with basketball, baseball, or football The 
Greek had a brief stmt as a varsity quarterback, 
but was lured away by a more lucrative offer in 
the sunny South Coming in at the three-minute 
call and falling asleep at the two, he often left 
more hair in his rack than on his thinning scalp. 
Never intimidated by the administrative conduct 
system, Paul stayed at the top for four years on 
the "Run for the Demos." Always with a girl (or 
two) waiting in the wings, Prothromos had to 
break his engagement to accommodate an 
adoring public from Penn to Georgia. As for

Although his dreams of joining the PGA Tour 
have been delayed by his decision to join the 
Navy tor 5 years, Tig taithtully spent his weekday 
afternoons at the golf course, never allowing 
academics or the military life to put a hitch in his 
swinging. Never one to suffer academic eye- 
strain, Tic rarely heard the taps bells from any 
place other than his faithful rack. Wisely spend- 
ing his Wednesday afternoons listening to the P- 
rade cannons from the «3 tee, Tig rose to lead 
the golf team as captain for the 74-75 season. 
Having the desire to go Nuclear Surface after

Napes, better known as the Italian stallion by 
his many friends, came to Mother B from the 
small town of Amsterdam, N.Y , where one of his 
favorite pastime hobbies was getting a hair cut 
while listening to Joe Sparranza's son play the 
trombone After learning to distinguish the first 
from the fourth class who occupied his rack at 
various times during his Plebe year, Tim went on 
to bigger and better things, namely, growing hair 
on his chest He participated in many company 
and Batt sports, but most of his time was spent 
in trying to keep his nose above the waters of 
the academic swimming pool, no rolling with the 
punches. Waiting until the last minute to do 
something, Tim will obviously pull through and 
not hurry to decide where he will spend his next

he goes, he'll always be remembered by his

"one and only" only to find more one and onlys 
or shall I say lovelies on the East Coast Nothing 
can come between Whips and having a good 
time, not even duty. The man with big plans and 
fresh at heart had problems deciding what type 
of car he wanted. He went from a Jag, to a 
Porsche, to a Jeep, then back to a Porsche and 
finally got a Volvo, what can I say' Whips is still 
tossing the coin for service selection night, shall 
it be Nuc Power, Air, Surface Time, or Seals, if 
his car is any indication he may go Marines. 


Mike journeyed to Annapolis from Hammond, 
Indiana. Entering the Academy ready for hard

a first class When Bob wasn't rowing, or listen- 
ing to tunes, or driving his white "Z," you might 
have found him studying (but only if he wasn't 
shooting the bull with someonei). Bob was 
always ready to talk about music, girls, or beer 
Bob's the type of guy who will never pass up a 
good time — just ask him about the Shore 
Patrol's newest helicopter, or the police who 
patrol the school yard in Annapolis, or the quick 
rides back from Army! 


"Winnie" came to the Naval Academy after a

prior to those engineering exams, passed with 
"flying" colors. Having been on the merit's list 
and having been the 2nd set company com- 
mander, he spent "many" long weekends win- 
ning the hearts of those area babes, well he 
broke a couple too. His life style sends him to 
Florida beaches searching for "more babers" 
and a F-14 Tomcat, his first love. A good man 
any way you look at him.

crankin' Systems was even too much for a 
three-weeker, let alone an all nighter. He slept 
by day but never by night, usually responding 
well to double moons. Plebe year saw Bubba 
rowing his way into the hearts of many like 
"Gobes" and "Donough." And then he was 
OINC of that stellar Army Project As an upper- 
classman, his "concern" for the Plebes brought 
him many a pep rally and even an all expense 
paid svv^im in the Severn. Other integral parts of 
the "Count Sagen " were his efforts with the

Each company has its flamer (resident mem- 
ber OTR) and ours was Squicc. He could usually 
be found ragging on plebe, officers, profs, or 
anything that moved. This was from his trench 
warfare training with such plebe year greats as 
the 8-4 five Never was there a dull moment dur- 
ing come arounds, especially those early morn- 
ing "Just out of the rack" periods, when the sun 
was pre-empted by a Nuclear blast by Squicc's 
joy for getting up to face Navy Being the CO of 
Pyro Central, he made his debut plebe year with 
the "fuel of the future "tennis ball cannon. 
Going into advanced lighter fluid mechanics, 
either anti-moth warfare and cracker tactics, he 
ended up taking the pledge as "torch man." 
Squicc's life long dreams included a sailing 
career at Navy, and a box of " 'nades" for XX X- 
mas, and getting neithe'r, he was never to realize 
the ultimate dream of "Nuc'em till they glow," 
both on the Severn or in Weapons Lab. Squicc 
was one of those (Good to be, but useless to the 
fleet) Oceanography majors. He was constantly 
in search of those mysterious wrinkled-neck 
Hudson Bay trout and Jacques Cousteau. Nev- 
ertheless he did realize greatness in his one final 
billet — CO Cheeser Ops If his service days are 
anything like those at CHESUNIVNAVTECH, it 
will sure be a hell of a Navy 


Wayne left a comfortable life in Wadley, Ala- 
bama (pop. 500), made a wrong turn at Vander- 
bilt and ended up at the University of Navy. 
Known by many names, such as Big Red (in 
honor of his hair), the Red Wad (in honor of his 
hair and hometown), 8-0 Woods (in honor of his 
4 grade average and 4 stripes 2/c year), or 
just plain Woody, he is a great friend to all. 
Wayne has always been a good athlete whether 
It be on the football field, the fieldball field or on 
the bottom of the pool; he has always managed 
to outsmart Mr. Lenz and the PE department. 
Wayne Is probably the only midshipman in 
Academy history known to write a letter to his 
hometown girlfriend every day for 3 years! He 
was going for 4 years but June now lives in 
Annapolis and Wayne commutes to school. 
Future plans for Wayne include graduation, 
wedding bells and flight school, almost all simul- 
taneously. It is certain that the Navy will be get- 
ting a great officer when Wayne joins the fleet.

Coming from the home of the "Beltsville Tur- 
key' and the headquarters of the USDA, Jim 
Adams came to the Naval Academy as one of its 
many new young studs "Runnin' Jim," as he Is 
known to the boys will always be remembered 
for his prowess on the athletic field and his com- 
petence in the classroom. Whether being 
sacked for a loss during company football 
games or knocked to the floor in the boxing ring, 
Jim will always be remembered as one who gave 
his best An oceanography ma|or, Jim studied 
diligently such subjects as Monday Night Foot- 
ball, the Movie of the Week, Kojak, Police Story, 
and Sanford and Son, Also, never one to waste a 
free period, Jim spent more than his fair share of 
time in the rack, setting a new second class 
record. As a first class, Jim decided that since 
little studying worked so well, no classes would 
be best of all and promptly bagged the entire 
year on Brigade Business," With visions of 
fighters dancing in his head, Jim is heading for 
Pensacola where we can be sure he will excel 
once again. 


Dorel came to USNA from Dundalk, Maryland 
as a 210 lb. football tennis wrestling sensation. 
Due to his great speed and agility as evidenced 
in plebe tennis, intramural sports, and in-com- 
pany rumbles (not due to his size as he had slim- 
med to a mere 195), he quickly obtained the 
name "Bear " Noted for his propensity to 
pounce upon those brave enough to challenge 
him (not to mention his ability to thrash soundly 
about the head and shoulders), to study only 
enough for a 3,0 and to ease his conscience, 
and to log 1 0,3 hours (at least) of rack per work- 
ing day With his tremendous sense of humor, 
Bear has endeared himself to his company 
mates and has livened up many a party: he has 
commanded respect and has earned much 
influence within the company Yes, the Bear 
from the Transylvanian Alps of Romania will be a 
real success in the Submarine community with 
his quick wit, brains and great personality Bear, 
those in 28 salute you as a true Red and scholar.

When not in the rack, Tim could be found 
sound asleep In class, which just about says it all 
as far as Tim and USNA are concerned Rarely 
known to take advantage of the system, Tirn 
managed to take seven weekends when he only 
rated three, skated through a Class A as the sev- 
enth member of the Beltsville Six, not to mention 
his strategic SIR's and Dental appointments An 
occasional procrastinator, he pulled his greatest 
feat by going F-A-A in first semester Wires 
Found during his summer, on the snows of Mt 
McKinley, Tim will integrate his love for the Navy 
and out-of-doors by becoming a member of the

He arrived on 30 June 1971 in bare feet and a 
straw hat And when he talked, you knew that 
there really was such a thing as a Southern 
drawl Todd came to the Naval Academy 
expecting to finish in the top 20, get numerous 
stripes, and set pole vaulting records — all of 
which he promptly accomplished Yet, in spite of 
these achievements, Todd was not a bad guy It 
was to him that 28th Company owes the origin 
of sticking as their form of Non-Judicial Punish- 
ment And the boys could always count on right- 
wing support from the Head Red himself It was 
also amazing how he kept all of his many girl 
friends apart (just kidding. Nan) With so many 
options open, the Nashville Boy doesn't know 
which branch of the service to grace — but we 
all know that he'll be a decided asset to them

Strolling into the Annapolis home for wayward 
boys from Southport High in Indianapolis, Bob 
immediately caught the attention of all by having 
something no one else had — sideburns' Since 
then Bob has settled down to the regular life of a 
midshipman by eating, sleeping and watching 
television as much as possible. When not on the 
tennis courts. Bob could be found starring for 
the company lightweights or slow-pitch softbal- 
lers Determined to prove that management is 
not a "bag it" major. Bob frequently studied as 
much as one hour per night when he wasn't in 
the lab playing with someone else's mind. In 
fact, he did so well, he was awarded a Trident 
Scholarship. After breezing through USNA, Bob 
will go on to become a topnotch Naval Officer 
and an even better civilian.

Joe came to Navy for an education, travel, 
responsibility, and a career He's certainly done 
a lot of traveling. He had trouble finding himself 
at Navy, trying scuba, skydiving, sports and a YP 
command but finally settling on academics That 
is, until cupid struck at Army second class year. 
He found out what being PW'd meant and liked 
it. He was always willing to help anybody with 
academics but when it came to Systems Engi- 
neering, more often than not he wasn't able to. 
It'll be a long time before that subject makes 
sense to him. Often criticized for his attitude his 
company rack didn't rise very far from the bot-

With the philosophy "the show must go on," 
Jeremiah waded through four years of Ocean 
Engineering hardly ever getting his feet wet. 
Much to Bronto's chagrin, he spent his time, 
free or not, with the sail, the stage, and the

when things got hard and he felt as much at 
home in the loft as he did in his own rack. Even 
with his soft spot for black lights, incense, and 
stereo gear, his fetish for a spotless room 
earned him the title of 1 /c room inspector.

After four tough years at Baltimore's Poly- 
technic Institute, Paul entered the Academy 
looking forward to college life. Although it was 
not quite the life he was looking for he applied 
himself to the limit and proved himself in all 
aspects of Academy life. He was known as one 
of the top performers in the Ops Analysis 
Department and on the varsity lacrosse team. 
He will not only be remembered in those places 
where he worked, but even more so in some 
places where he did some classic relaxing Who 
will forget his fine performances at the Dove, the

The South rose up again by sending the lovial 
redhead from Richmond, Virginia to the presti- 
gious school by the banks of the Severn, Having 
had an older brother precede him by two years 
through USNA, Hut had to work hard at and suc- 
ceeded in establishing his own identity. Known 
for his size (or lack of it), he always reached for 
the biggest things in life. He went tor something 
better when that wasn't enough. One could 
often spot him on the tennis courts either as a 
member of the Navy team, or just out for his own 
en|oyment. He loved Triumphs, enjoyed his 
math major, grew fond of the name "Minna," 
and was a great impersonator, best known for 
"Cesar" during the plebe year Christmas party. 
With the amount of natural ability that he has. 
Hut will do well wherever he is flying the friendly 


"Request permission not to bilge my class- 
mate, sir." And with these words the Bald Pol- 
lock entered USNA. Ski quickly proved himself 
to be the one any person could count on for a 
favor or food "Crazy Harry sent me" was our 
favorite greeting to him. And after removing 
plebe basketball splinters, he showed that there 
were a few people from Wisconsin who could 
play sports decently. His major handicap is his 
atrocious sense of humor A typical Kucinski 
Joke: ". . . did you hear about the termite who 
walked into the tavern and asked, 'Is the bar 
tender here''' " Just ask for his fine collection of 
notes from 1 /c year for numerous other prime 
examples Although still lacking in a couple of 
the necessary vices. Ski is well on his way to 
becoming an excellent Surface Warfare Officer

such places as Durango, La Grange, Walter

times. Getting his priorities straight was his 
major accomplishment here, (Leave, weekends, 
wardroom and rack, in that order). Ivlort was nat-

Peerless Clothing plan). We'll all remember him 
by such things as his stimulating poems, the

Jim, along with many other members of the 
Class of 75, came to the Academy with fond 
dreams of obtaining an education He quickly 
saw the light by becoming a history major, 
thereby dissolving his dream This did not cause 
him to misappropriate his study time however, 
as it was judiciously divided between either the 
rack or company wardroom. Perhaps his most 
famous exploits lie on the road, where his driv- 
ing skills have drawn the eye of more than one 
trooper. Every Friday afternoon he could be 
observed blasting off from the seawall for the 
start of his most famous racing circuit — the 
DC-50 Monte Carla. Jim's genuine concern for 
the Navy's welfare can be illustrated by his 
applying nine times for Ops Info in one semes- 
ter. With such sincere interest in the Navy's well 
being, the CNO should find himself with another 
fine aviator come June '75. 


With a mighty "Way to screw me over, class- 
mates," Harry launched his four year tour at 
USNA hailing from the thriving metropolis of 
Houston (Pronounced house-ton), Ohio (pro- 
nounced 0-hi-o). It was thriving in that the cow 
and pig population was booming and thus easily 
outnumbered the people in his high school. 
Having never done many of the things we do at 
USNA back in his high school, Harry got off to a 
mediocre start. He is a quick learner, however, 
and IS now able to compete with the best in the 
fields of eating, drinking, sleeping, girl watching, 
spending money, etc. Put that together with his 
interest in sports, his major of oceanography, 
and a 240-Z, and one realizes why he's called 
"Crazy Harry" One also realizes that he'll be a 
success wherever he journeys forth. 


Deep from the heartlands of New England

has since steadily advanced through the ranks 
of his classmates to become the first set com-

ments on the golf course are over-shadowed 
only by his tremendous coordination and skill on 
the soccer field and basketball court Never 
mind Zulu, neither are carry-over sports. At any 
rate, he has the unusual talent of organization 
and personal management at his fingertips at all 
times, and these will remain tremendous assets 
as long as he does not run his fingers through 
his hair Surface line is mighty fine, and Sully

often be heard complimenting a plebe 3 wings 
away. If not ardently studying in the company

out on his very own blue and white trampoline. 
In spite of all this, Buns has more than kept his 
head above water in academics and likes to

has managed a year in gymnastics, .1 gravy, 
and an ornery girlfriend Joe has been a great 
asset to company sports and activities, and 
prides himself in being T.E He Is not often seen 
in the wardroom, but he can rationalize nights 
spent in there with the best of us. House lives up 
to the role of company freak by listening to weird 
music, fraternizing with assorted weirdos, and 
growing beards every summer. I just hope his 
long hair and whiskers don't itch inside his flight 


Steve or "Cheapshot" came to the Academy 
as a member of a Navy family, so transition to 
the Navy way of life was no big thing for him. His 
goal at the Academy was to prepare himself for 
a career as a Nuclear Submariner, and he has 
done a fine job. As a Mechanical Engineer, he 
studied hard and got good grades as his reward. 
Because of his love for sailing, Steve could be 
found in a sailboat most every day as a member 
of the Varsity Sailing Team In his senior year, 
Steve was rewarded by being named Co-captaIn 
of the team He spent a lot of his spare time play- 
ing football with the boys where he received the

western immigrant often bragged of being a stud 
while downing one more for the Corps. Coyote 
loved academics about as much as women 
loved him. In other words, with the old cliche 
that one can take 'em or leave 'em, he usually 
got took! Coyote's been home 3 times now in his 
East Coast 260-Z and his sidekicks Poulton and 
Tiny have yet to recognize him. They were figur- 
ing on a shiny four by four, three quarter ton pic- 
kup with a stock rack on the back Larry's love 
and devotion for the Navy after having traveled

mastered the mile, they never kept him from 
Pittsburg where Maureen made him happy With 
his fanatic desire to fly we're not sure if f^avy is 
getting a pilot or a bird but in any case we're all 
going to miss him 


(1 953 to who knows when'') Timothy L Heely, 
or better known in The Log as "Teedy Heedy," 
or as "Heaply" in the 29th Co or simply "Ted" 
by LCDR Weston is another one of those hip, 
together midwesterners. Majoring in Political 
Science is just one of his many pastimes. Work- 
ing as a prime member of The Log staff, part 
time member of the parachute and scuba clubs 
usually fill up his traditional back-to-back young- 
ster mornings and afternoons during the week 
His social enjoyment includes "Boofa" on a 
friendly walk through town, camping with some 
veteran 29th Co, Boy Scouts who still have their 
cook-kits, "tinkling the ivory" for the patrons of 
the Hilton, changing his lifestyle every other day, 
or calling up a certain stewardess to find out that 
she's flying every weekend for a month. What- 
ever the case may be, Teedy, Heaply or Ted 
likes to live freely, enjoy life as much as possible 
and, most of all, take long weekends.

Dor1 IS the kind of guy who says what he 
means and finds an acute pleasure in saying it to 
his classmates Don't let it be said that he didn't 
like the Academy, he even volunteered to visit 
Main O instead of the Library for awhile, but 
that's another "page" in his books of life. He 
came here from the backwoods of fVladison, 
Ohio after a brief stop at U. of Michigan and 
would rather sit next to a fire, under the stars 
and whittle a buzzard, than ride the waves. As a 
result, he's getting as close to being a profes- 
sional boy scout as the Navy will let him .... a 


Bob took a big step when he left his jeep and 
his fan club in that small clearing called Franklin 
somewhere in the backwoods of North Carolina. 
His goal was to find a means for becoming a 
high school football coach and math teacher. 
Perhaps that's why he figured he should come 
to the boat school and major in Wires. From the 
first year, Kups put his football theory to the test 
while playing for the battalion and giving point- 
ers to the Navy team from his coaching box in 
the stands. Although he is sometimes referred to 
as "Crazy," several classmates depend on Bob 
for the "gouge" which he obtains from many 
hard hours in the land of transistors, capacitors, 
and resistors A life of love and leisure will surely 
end for Bob when he settles down with "Old 
Faithful" Peggy and goes to work for Admiral 
Reactor The teaching job will have to wait for 
five years. 


Don, "Northman" came to us from California 
only to find that the rack was the best way to 
pass 4 years on the east coast One day in a 
sleepy stupor he stumbled across the opportu- 
nity of a life time . . . (the Y.P. Squadron'?) He 
was never the same. Give him the sea and a 
strong ship and Don had heaven on earth . 
Don — the sea — and a Y.P. But being from 
California, Don had to display his "golden boy" 
characteristics so he joined the Masqueraders. 
Fighting off crowds of madly starstruck Mids, he 
wooed a local lovely Deciding that PDA behind 
the stage just wasn't the way, Don moved out in 
town It was this decision which marked him first 
candidate for "anti-bachelorhood" June 1975 
Service selection was also a problem for Don — 
deciding whether to push strollers or drive ships. 




Dave ""Big Red"' Pruett hails from the land of 
the Hogs, Benton, Arkansas Plebe year was a 
tough one for Dave what with a Dear John letter, 
low grades and an injury on the slopes at Mt 
Snow Dave earned several honors, though 
including "Duty Mechanic of First Class Cars" 
and the "Susie Homemaker" award for room 
cleanliness above and beyond the call of duty 
Dave's fine pertormance continued into second 
and third class years and soon became a Co. 
fieldball star contrary to his usual athletic per- 
formance and though his academic career 
started slowly, Dave soon learned to "communi- 
cate" with his profs and his grades soared Dave 
would like to build bridges for the CEC and 
spends most of his time now using his ocean 
engineering background to plan his underwater 
city! So if your sub ever runs into an underwater 
metropolis you can bet Dave is at the bottom of 




Mike Reust came to the Naval Academy 4 
years ago from a small town in Oklahoma. Mike 
IS more well known for his "goofing-off" skills 
than for his academic achievements. But, some- 
how, when the end of each semester rolls 
around he's got a 2 or better Some people are 
just lucky I guess. If there would ever be an 
award given to the person who's the biggest 
"bagger," Mike would be one of the top con- 
tenders Mike's big ambition since coming to the 
Naval Academy has been to become a Navy 
pilot. Since he has his head up in the clouds 
most of the time anyway, he is bound to be a 
success. When Mike graduates and faces the 
real world, the training and experience he's had 
while at the Academy will be put to the test. 
Whatever he does, whether he's an F-4 pilot or 
in the civilian world, I know Mike will come out 
ahead of the game, Mike has a lot of new and 
different ideas, I, along with all his other fnends, 
wish him all the luck and success in the world for 
the coming future. 


A rose is a rose is a rose"? Not this one Soft as 
a petal on the surface. Van's life at USNA was 
much behind the scenes An Oceanography 
major on the books. Van's interests were always 
centered more toward man's biology than that 
of the fish. He spent several tours of duty on 
hospital point, A frustrated Bio-science major, 
his weak knees were a clever disguise for a 
burning desire to spend more time associating 
with his would be doctor peers. He went to great 
lengths to be convincing, (The scar tissue that 
slaloms across that |Oint looks real,) J. V, wanted 
to be a doctor so much that he kept his room 
hospital clean and dated a nurse. Most Mids 
used the library, but Van spent his second class 
evenings on the third deck of Michelson Hall — 
gouging with the Naval Academy's human ency- 
clopedia He never became the varsity football 
jock that he seemed destined to become A prep 
school knee injury changed J, V's varsity 
dreams into intramural nightmares He graced 
the company soccer, fieldball, and Softball 
teams with his presence and sometimes shakey 
legs, but his competitive spirit made him a wel- 
come addition. Always one to turn a catchy 
phrase. Van will probably be remembered for his 
"Frozen Katoochies" and "Dad-blamed Nibits"

Hondo was the contribution of the little old 
matchmakers of Banana Land Between weekly 
"sub runs" to DC, our man from South of the 
Border parked his car outside the gate and 
spent another week trying to plug into the aca- 
demic socket Neldo's articulation and com-

Service selection came early for the Banana

"Bugsy" came to USNA from the hills of 
Nevada City, Calif, for his first exposure to civili- 
zation. Don came a runner and has rarely stop- 
ped since, earning himself a N''' plebe year in 
cross country Right before coming back for 
academic year youngster year, Don found out 
just as the apostle Paul that it is very hard to 
walk in rebellion, and submitted his life to the 
Lordship of Jesus From that point on, he has 
strived to bring all areas of his life into their 
proper place, and now he has rarely stopped 
smiling. Don can now truthfully say, "Brethren, I 
do not consider that I have made it on my own; 
but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind 
and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press 
on toward the goal for the prize of the upward 
call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13- 


Once upon a time, Kevin put all his clothes in 
a shaving kit and left Wilmington, Delaware to 
grace USNA with his presence. Academics 
came easy, but he didn't do well in his running 
battles with his roommates, the PE department, 
and the laundry His biggest regret was that he 
couldn't take his rack with him to class. Of the 
fairer sex. Kevin was totally oblivious until an 
eventful youngster cruise, after which commut- 
ing to California ruined his budget The Marine 
Corps was too good for him, so the submarine

Ed, or as he is more affectionately known, 
Cheese, came to us from Cherry Hill, New Jer- 
sey as a quiet, unassuming All American boy 
... or so we thought. Yet as he went from 
youngster cruise to second class summer with 
his soft spoken manner, he left more than one 
young lass behind in Copenhagen and Pensa- 
cola. Always the first to assist in the celebration 
of another's birthday, it was only fitting that on 
his big day he leave his signature on state circle 
One of the few people ever to "flunk" his way to 
the Sup'ts list, Ed is sure to be a great asset to 
whatever branch of the Navy he chooses.

Drifting into USNA from somewhere on the 
Eastern seaboard came this strange old night 
owl who subsisted on a diet of Cicadas Bnan 
surprised everyone (and disappointed some) by 
surviving jump school and going on to win his 
gold wings Beec's arsenal, squirreled away in 
the bottom of his locker, struck fear in the hearts 
of his roommates, however, Deadeye was far 
more dangerous with a rifle A sometime teeto- 
taler, Brian will always carry a reminder of 2/c

was but a mere way station on his journey to the 
MUD of Quantico 


Jack came to USNA to see if Crabtown had 
any better surf than Virginia Beach, his home- 
town. Plebe summer, however, showed him that 
the only surf around was in the head on 7-3, The 
"Spirit of 5244" enabled F. J, to secure a name 
for himself by surviving the pitfalls of Navy, 
including bayonet attacks, 'AC Board attacks, 
wardroom brawls, shower parties, and of course 
the "Battle of Gettysburg" These and many 
more experiences insure success for J T when 
he decides to either fly or float in this man's 


"Lefty" is the biggest flamer to hit this place. 
Unfortunately the name Flamin' Frank isn't from

try his hand at playing human rocket: the lighted 
flatus blew him nght across the room into the

Jack came to the Big Blue with hopes of wres- 
tling, but ended up only wrestling grades and 
roomnnates. Strange Room' Most- of Jack's time 
IS taken up with the D&B where he's a "blower" 
Plenty of beer in the fleet for Jack to wet his 
whistle on. 


Grote, as he was affectionately called by his 
classmates, has certainly left his mark on USNA. 
Aspiring to be a track jock when he first arrived, 
Grote soon came around and became one of 
the all-time stalwarts at the 1 2 oz. curl His favor- 
ite pastime, however, was the opposite sex. 
Whether she be from Mary Wash or the far 
reaches of another land, the Groteman was sure 
to pursue. And when things were running a little 
slow, he could always be counted on to bug a 
classmate to set him up. Grote will be well 
remembered by all (particularly for his natural 
ability to clear a small room fast), and the fleet 
will be gaming a hard working and dependable 
ship driver. 


You can tool some of the people some of the 
time but you can't fool Tommy. Tommy is the

a smile and IS always singing . . oh just for the 
halibut. After washing out of jump school plebe 
summer (even his roommates couldn't get him 
to jump, no matter how hard they tried) he 
decided to go Navy Air (head).

Andy came to Annapolis from the thriving 
metropolis of Fall River, located somewhere in 
Massachusettes A good basketball prospect 
until Plebe summer took care of his knees, "The 
Bear" has more hours in the USNA Hospital 
than Steve Canyon has in )ets Andy has had to 
work hard for his grades. Seeing the AC Board Is 
not one of his favorite events. But he found his 
calling in History and has done well As a con- 
firmed airdale he will do well in the program, or 
for that matter anything he pursues. 


Rodger coasted through Plebe summer dis- 
guised as a bulkhead With the coming of AC 
year, he managed to make himself scarce by 
fading into the anonymity of the Hot Air Section 
of D&B He evaded the intramural program for 
1 1 sets by hiding in the second wing basement 
punching little holes in pieces of paper Rodge 
spent many an hour whispering sweet nothings 
into the ear of his Ward hall honey («635) to 
make up for the scarcity of phone calls from his 
New York honey ( * 634), Even with the exercise 
provided by the Melville Mile, R P never quite 
won his squirmishes with the PE department His 
experience as a sub at USNA led to a natural 
desire to be a Sub Mariner.

Hayseed Martin came to USNA driving his air- 
conditioned combine from Kansas Scared to 
death by the big sea, he still thinks a schooner

the Brigade in 72. And Dino's followed in his

Little Duane came to us in the summer of 71 , 
thin, scared, and confused After four years of 
expert military training we still have the same old 
Duane, still thin, still scared, still confused, 
Duane is an Operations Analysis major, but he 
missed his calling We all fully realize his major 
should have been Chemistry, but he's too mod- 
est and didn't want to show off, right D. J.? 
Duane has found one very good thing while at 
USNA, and that is Arlene his OAO who will have 
to take care of him forevermore Good luck and 
best wishes Arlene, you have a job on your 
hands In all seriousness, we all wish Duane the 
best of luck, but we're sure he won't need it, 
because he has the ability and ambition to do 
anything he chooses.

Scott came from Westchester, Pa to the 
beautiful shores of Crabtown by the Bay in 71 . 
Because he was the only one in his swimming 
class who could take a full breath and still sink to 
the bottom, he became known as "Aquadog " 
He also played soccer, fieldball, and lacrosse 
dunng his four years A great deal of time was 
spent playing his guitar for the Officer's Chris- 
tian Fellowship Also he organized the Christian 
activities for tfie Naval Academy Christian Asso- 
ciation. It will be "rub-a-dub-dub-let's drive a 
Sub" unless Adm. Rickover throws him out of 
the office. It could be plainly seen that Jesus was 
his top priority in lite. And Scott hopes to share 
the joy he finds in Jesus with all his friends. As 
Jesus said, "Everyone who drinks of this water 
shall never thirst again." (John 4:14) 


Chasbo decided early in his career not to let 
the little things bother him. So academics fell by 
the wayside. It came to pass that Charlie's favor- 
ite pastime was sleeping through class and then 
thinking up unique excuses In 4 years at Navy, 
Chas' lone distinction is that at one point only 
the Brigade Commander had missed more 
classes, not bad for an t^lR, 


Better known as Raz Sockless or the more 
familiar Raz, he comes to NA from the Eastport 
banks, just a 400 yd swim across Spa Creek. 
Having decided not to go away to college, Raz 
sacrificed his many leisurely hours of buzzing 
unsuspecting Crabmen at 100 knots, hung up 
his crab nets, turned in his water skis, traded his 
Boston Whaler for the greyhounds of the Severn 
and collected his 3(1 travel pay The first two 
years were spent working hard on his cum and 
lax ineptness But that didn't last too long His 
attentions were soon diverted in the true 
"ghetto" spirit Offering his home as a station of 
the Underground Railway for illegal mobiles and 
underaged sops, the familiar "Aw, come on 
hoss, you can make it" and "don't worry, you 
won't get caught" were well versed lines of Raz. 
Also during the week, one could see our man in 
question scampering off to Nimitz to study (a 
lovely young brunette) Raz hopes to become a 
steamer and is still looking for a billet aboard a 
CFB (Crab Fishing Boat). 


Zak, as he was known by all, brought with him 
from the All American city of Johnstown, Pa , a 
competitive spirit and the love of a gamble. He 
could always be counted on to pick the winners 
or pick the best business, and he often made 
Jimmy the Greek look like an amateur Always a 
smile, always in good spirits, he could always be 
counted on to lend a hand to a classmate in 
need, even though it might mean a personal 
sacrifice With 454 cubes under his trow now, 
Zak will be making haste on weekends for the All 
American city on the scene of the parties and

Leaving the wet, muggy climate of Tucson,

"sunny, dry" Annapolis right out of high school. 
Showing his athletic prowess. Bob participated 
in most of the intramural sports during his stay at 
Canoe U When not on the athletic field, 
"Boob," as he was affectionately known in the 
company, could usually be found in some quiet 
niche of Nimitz fulfilling his 30 hours a week 
study obligation Also, living so far away and 
having no female distractions to lure him from 
these hallowed halls. Bob found it convenient to 
spend precious days of leave in search of that 
magical QPR that would get him into Med 
School In spite of the academic demand on his 
"free" time, "Boob" still found time to listen to 
classical music and watch a few sunrises each 
semester from the "red beach " Yes, the Medi-

Arriving on the drizzly shores of Michigan, Jim 
immediately dominated the academic scene and 
became a permanent member of the Dean's

torture for his scholarly peers. Athletically, Jim 
can be best remembered for never wasting a 
minute in preparing for his mile run, pacing back 
and forth in the room at double time while pre- 
tending to contemplate some pressing issue (or 
weekend date). During the week, Jim can be 
found hard at work but on the weekends he con- 
ducts independent research on the formulation 
of "farmer's daughter" jokes In spite of his 
ambitions for the easy life, Jim is looking forward 
to the annual Rickover fiasco. Well, if E really 
equals MC' and if Old MacDonald has a farm, 
Jim will make an outstanding Naval officer 


Mike came to the Academy from Wendell, 
N C- as a young, hard charging stud seeking 
knowledge and command responsibility And 
find them he did. As one of "Kaiter's Raiders," 
he was placed m charge of Fargo the Duck, the 
symbol of the raiders Members of that fearless 
team including "Leaps," Kaiter himself and 
"The Rock" have and always will serve as an 
inspiration to Mike. Although Mike has always 
taken academics seriously, he never lets them 
unnerve him. Problems that would send the 
average engineer into a frenzy, he can always 
take lying down He simply takes the firm stance 
that if It isn't in the gouge or on the tube it isn't 
worth knowing anyhow Wendell has definitely 
been well represented on the athletic field as 
well as the company tables Mike's fierce com- 
petitive spirit in the latter area has earned him 
the name "Fat Boy" and stands second only to 
his fellow librarian, Turnbuckle Warning —

Woody, (a familiar form of Woody-Wood- 
pecker) as his friends affectionately call him, 
found immediate success in academics. He 
started out with a good solid QPR and has kept it 
on the rise ever since Yes, Woody leaves no 
detail to chance He even wears an ID bracelet 
in the event he should be called on to sign his 
name at the spur of the moment. Woody owes 
his outstanding grades to consistent hard work 
In fact, after evening meal every night, |ust after 
he brushes his teeth, polishes his stars, and 
flexes his muscles in front of the mirror. Woody 
hits the books, and as everyone knows, no per- 
son dare enter that room for any reason what so 
ever unless at brace. After four straight years of 
diligent preparation for the Marine Corps, 
Woody has chosen Nuclear Power as the way to 
go He carries the distinction of being one of the 
few persons ever to set forth his own conditions 
to the Academy Nuclear Power interviewers 
before agreeing to consider Nuclear Power as a 
service selection His sheer determination alone 
IS enough to ensure success in whatever cause 
he chooses

William Henry King IV, alias "Kinger" will long 
be remembered for his lighthearted antics. 
Rumored to have been proudly displayed by his 
Dad by holding the babe up by his ears, Bill got 
his most noticeable physical feature. Varsity 
fencing proved rewarding as Bill was chosen to 
lead as team captain in his second class year. 
He completely baffled his opponents with his 
spasmodic style leaving them with a grin in a 
cross-eyed daze With academics firmly under 
his belt, he occasionally accompanied them with 
a few bnskies, finding the morning after hard to 
stomach Bill's hard working initiative and ability 
to hang m there, will prove him to be a fine addi- 
tion to our Nuclear surface Navy. 


John or JD came to the hallowed halls on the 
bay straight from the Beer Capital of the world 
The transition between swinging party-goer to 
common Joe Mid was made with the best of the 
rest and with the start of academic year came 
the beginning of a long, rough 4 year battle with 
the books. Although John's true love fell with 
music as shown in his activities with the Glee 
Club, Catholic Choir, and the yearly contest 
between the USNA Choirs and Hood College, he 
ended up in wires and what a shock. After a 
painful discharge from plebe and company soc- 
cer, JD turned his horizons elsewhere and 
focused in on the YP Squadron to make his fame 
and fortune, getting command twice in his tours 
with the Greyhounds of the Bay. John is affec- 
tionately known as TF Nerd by his close friends, 
a name received by a dear departed classmate 
who also gave JD the title of Company Playboy 
during youngster year for his weekly support of 
the young ladies that abound in the area John 
intends to go Nuclear Power and then become a

Seeing as how Rick is a Navy Junior, there 
was only one thing he could do after high 
school, become a Mid. So in June of '71 after 
completing high school in Durham, N.C., he 
packed his bags for the Crabtown on the Bay 
Rich managed to survive Plebe summer in one 
piece. Academic year rolled around and so did 
the Varsity Rifle team. After 4 years on the team 
he still can't hit the target. Some of Rick's other 
activities include Protestant Chapel Choir and 
weekly runs to Duke University to visit his bride 
to be, Kit. She's not very happy with his Navy Air 
service selection but it's better than being 
"dead" for 2 months at a time Rick hopes his 
EE major will help him pull through Pensacola. 
The white sandy beaches of Pensacola are call- 
ing him to two years of hard work at the Annapo- 
lis of the airi 


On June 30, 1971 the USNA acquired a mild 
mannered soccer stud by the name of Timothy 
R Myers Tim, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio came 
to boat school in order to become a soccer star 
However, to his surprise he had to pursue an 
academic career while being forced to become 
a leader of men. Tim had no problem making the 
adjustment, and majored in Ocean Engineering. 
He has gained a great grasp for the field through 
hours of tedious studying in front of the tube On 
any given night he can be found viewing scien- 
tific advancements such as Voyage to the Bot- 
tom of the Sea and the Poseidon Adventure 
How some people have arrived at the conclusion 
that Tim has poor study habits is beyond me He 
is always willing to put 2 hours of rack time in for 
every class hour Tim is preparing himself for a 
career in Nuclear Power Tim will do very well in 
the program because he also has enough 
reserved energy to last 1 5 years. 


Thomas Emile Massicotte, Jr — traditionally 
known as "Blivett" (coined by his "Negat" roo- 
mie) — came to USNA from Bristol. Conn., and 
soon became an irreplaceable fixture among his 
classmates Tom was always one to prepare well 
in advance, readying himself with horizontal 
workouts for his old nemesis, the PE test, and 
diligently waiting until a day or two before finals 
to crack his books. Strangely enough, though, 
Tom always managed a second or two of 
"gravy" and hovered around the coveted 3.00. 
After several unsuccessful romances, Tom 
finally found true love behind the wheel of his 
Lotus, always travelling with his faithful passen- 
ger, J Beam An Aero major. Tom looks forward 
to his second love behind the stick of an F-14. 
Gifted with the natural ability to excel. Tom will 
certainly go much further than the cruising 
radius of either his Lotus or an F-14. 


David Olivena known as Super Fetus by his 
teammates on the varsity lightweight crew team 
and Ollie by his other friends, came to USNA 
from Jacksonville, Florida. Ollie's major is 
Oceanography and when not coxing the crew 
team, working with the Brigade Hop Committee 
or First Class Car Committee, he can usually be 
found studying diligently in his room. However, 
on weekends he can be seen driving "Pluto" 
Possche and he is not against having a few "bri- 
skies" every now and then. Ollie has not yet 
decided whether to go straight to Pensacola for 
pilot training or to pick Surface Warfare with an 
air option, but either way he will complement the 
Naval Service.

Leaving that thriving megalopolis, Blooms- 
burg, Pennsylvania, Dave came to Navy seeking 
fame and fortune. Finding neither, he settled for 
the thrill of academic challenge. After deciding 
to study engineering, Dave shrewdly bought a 
not so smoothly running MG, youngster year, 
and gained many hours of valuable mechanical 
experience on the weekends. Outside of aca- 
demics Dave proved a fleet footed defensive 
halfback for 2 company football teams. He was 
also renowned as a carpenter, easily having 
built a remarkable, sturdy stereo table. Being 
one of the few who won't need a haircut after 
losing the H. Ross Perot bet, we can see that 
Dave is headed for TBS and we hope he finds 
success and happiness in the Corp 

Rob, a worldly young man from Youngstown, 
Ohio, was seldom seen around the company. 
When he was, he was usually studying, listening 
to a vast variety of music, or improving his skills 
as a black belt in karate using his roommate or 
some other hapless soul as a dummy. JW sel- 
dom felt challenged by the academic or military 
life of a midshipman. The only thing that ever 
rattled his calm composure was finding out that 
he was engaged. His girl told him in a letter 
youngster cruise. With a lot of tack Rob was able 
to hang on to his freedom until second class 
year when he found out from a third party one of 
the local girls had already made plans for their 
wedding. Always the first to know these things, 
JW took it in stride and started running. Life at 
Sea holds little appeal to JW. Most of his experi- 
ence has been in trying all the cures for sea sick- 
ness In a time when the military is in need of 
capable young officers the Marine Corps is get- 
ting one of the best. 

Glenn will not soon be forgotten by his class- 
mates. His service as company librarian as far 
back as plebe year, has proven his value as a 
builder of morale Trying his hand at Navy 
sports, Glenn plowed head on into boxing. Trou- 
ble with 'inaccurate' scales and academics 
forced his retirement while he was in his prime 
All nighters and lengthy El sessions comple- 
mented his indepth study of the USNA Ward- 
rooms and the nuclear powered' rack Though 
this study required a great deal of effort, he has 
managed to survive with a minimum amount of 
wasted rack time His physique, home state and 
name have become a source for an endless 
number of nicknames and this has certainly 
made him a mystery to the underclass. To us 
who know him, Thomo will always be Chief 
when he isn't Bama.

After excelling in high school in Middlebuegh, 
(where'') New York, Mark came to USNA with 
the intentions of studying Oceanography As 
Mark was never one to bag it, he immediately 
plunged into the more esoteric field of English. 
Late night studying to be a part time engineer 
never hindered Mark's desire to express his 
daily devotion to that dynamite movie starlet, 
"All (Joan) McGraw" on academy vellum. Born 
with a hollow left leg and in insatiable appetite 
for gourmet dining, Mark preferred quantity to 
quality when it came to Navy burgers and fries. 
Being Neil Diamond's major source of record 
income in the Washington-Baltimore area, Mark 
was often found whiling away the hours dream- 
ing of porcupine pie. After much vacillation Mark 
appears to be headed for the fossil fuel fleet and 
his surface warfare officer designation No mat- 
ter where he goes, Mark will keep to the right 
and keep moving No matter how you look at it, 
"V D." is something to clap about. 


Brent came to the Academy from the Petty 
School in his hometown, Hightstown, New Jer- 
sey. Plebe year, Norm excelled in academics, 
baseball, and aptitude, and was selected as the 
3/c Brigade Commander With high hopes, he 
reviewed his academic possibilities and though 
intent on Oceanography, decided to major in 
Ocean Engineering. Little did he know that he 
had made his first mistakes since 1963. After re- 
assessing his priorities youngster year. Brent 
stepped out of the limelight for the finer things in 
life (wine, Janet, and cars). Although hampered 
by a bad knee 2/c year, Norman continued to 
reach for the gusto and build up his account at 
the HOJO Savings and Loan. Now, with the end 
in sight and service selection near. Brent still 
wants to run with the best. Nuclear Power is his 
service preference. 


Hailing from the unpleasant wastelands of 
Southern California the "Young One" arrived 
one balmy midsummer's afternoon to enjoy the 
sunny, warm East Coast climate. Almost 
instantly. Randy was welcomed by the unique 
hospitality of this Mid-Atlantic institution. Fortu- 
nately, before trauma set in, "Young One" met 
the "Dufe," whose inspirational words and 
fatherly advice have kept his elbow up for these 
tough years. A hesitant veteran of the main (O) 
mile immediately prior to commencing second 
class year, "Young One" finally took that giant 
step towards seven years as one of our nation's 
finest C) Long hours on poisson processes and 
chucklin' Charlie's lap have prepared "Young 
One" for his destiny in the fossil fuel fleet (the 
world of main steam stop valves and mid- 
watches watching the horizon, vice the tube). 
The Brisky King escapes occasionally when his 
female guardian deems it wise to bring him his 
pint-sized blue bomb (with the round engine). 
Good Luck Randy . . Catch you in the fleet 
when our ships meet (hopefully not head on)

A small step toward closer international rela-

through friendships with a Colombian gentle- 
man, Jaime Acevedo Thoughts of Plebe Sum- 
mer bring back memories of company come- 
arounds where Mr Uricoli finally got tired of try- 
ing to pronounce Acevedo thus fixing the ever- 
lasting nickname of Avacado. Jaime, seeing the

From St. Louis came the brigade's fastest 
math ma)or. No one could touch his speed on 
the "W" course but then due to his fine speed 
he lost a good knee at Canoe U. There went his 
chance to play ball but "WOW" did he ever 
score with the Annapolitans' Then a fine young 
lady blitzed his game and now he sits on the 
bench watching the rookies gain yardage Had 
us scared for a while by thinking of going CORE 
but finally got it all together with NFO. Variations 
was the name, singing was his game , It 
won't be the same around here without him. 
Take it slow and see ya on cloud nine.

of Jersey City, New Jersey Though somewhat 
stymied by Plebe year, "Bronco" managed to

Coming from a small town in Nebraska, it took 
Jim a year to adjust to the fast life of Bancroft 
Hall Jim's sport ambition was originally to star 
on the 1 50 pound football team, but he saw the

will be well remembered for his exploits during

midshipman, could be more professional, more 
gungy, more loose than this super sliding stu- 
dent of the Orient, Known not only for his amaz- 
ing frolicking tours of Hong Kong, Courtney

good buddy, fvir, Foti, he has stuck by us and

his New Orleans weekends and his tall fish sto-

find Keith cultivating 40 acres of pnme Alabama

of one who knew exactly what was happening, 
but never why or when it was happening He 
possessed the amazing power to make it rain in 
his room after the first night of liberty before the

class "A" performance and was officially deco- 
rated at the Mam Office by the Officer of the

his drift factor towards being one of the best sail-

Lud was indecisive on whether he was going

Mark came to Navy from Mount Holly, N.J,, 
convinced of going nuclear power and ready to

set in, but he still accomplished his first goal. His 
good nature and unselfish character allowed 
him to help many friends who came to him for 
help, at his own expense These 3 long years the

Bob joined our forces from California via Lake 
Hopatcong, N.J., where the Naval Academy is 
still a mystery to most Lacking miserably in the 
: qualities of engineering thought patterns, he 
kept his head above water with the gravy from 
his bull courses. His proficiency with the pen led 
to the co-authorship of a number of classmates' 
love letters in return for engineering gouge. Bob 
was dedicated to eliminating as many hassles as 
possible, but it took him 3 years to see the light 
(and libs) before he left the baseball field and the 
duffer Bob's other dedication was a young 
lovely dating from high school days. Although 
he was rarely seen frolicking around town. Bob 
made up for it by spending every free minute of 
1 /c year with 'Lady,' his wife to be. Never a part 
of the crowd (some saying he couldn't find it). 
Bob preferred to stand back and observe as the 
comedy of the world unfolds. When he gradu-

James, hailing from Sparta, N.J., developed

girl, eat steak, and live forever a lumberjack. 


'Roach' never quite adapted to the daily rou- 
tine at USNA, spending more time sleeping in 
class and the wardroom than in his rack, being a 
creature of the night and avoiding daylight. He 
always preferred the relaxed look in the room, 
using the floor and rack to store most of his 
books, laundry, and used cigarette butts Always 
true to his favorite saying (don't get mad, get 
even!) he always held his own in the wardroom 
'pit' or the ghetto Known as the best non-reg 
barber in the brigade, he never had a man go 
down for one of his haircuts. An engineer to the 
end, he didn't let the studies keep him from mak- 
ing a decent living in car repairs, a job that led 
him to the presidency of ttie car club. Roach 
was the master of shaky deals, always studying 
the reg book looking for loopholes. He loved to 
be on the open road more than anything, by 
thumb usually, especially when heading toward 
a certain New Jersey lass. A tried and true 
fnend, Manne Green gains a good man as he 
sets his sights on a jet seat. 


Mike came to us with a ring through his nose 
and his sights set on becoming a lifer, and a

academics, he could be heard at El, "don't con- 
fuse me with the facts, just give me the gouge." 
But after 4 years of applying Murphy's Law, "the

T. J. led all company members with the either 
overcontrolled or undercontrolled status he dis- 
played at weekend functions. The suave and 
debonair "Goodtime" was a smashed hit with all 
the goodlooking females, or too nice with the 
opposite TJ took great pride in his glorified 
Volkswagen leading to his controlled status. 
Tom's academic options let him smoke the Engi- 
neering Dept. after one semester 3/c year. A 
respected wrestler he could always be instigated 
into involvement in a prank or other foul play. TJ

Hailing from the 'Sun Country' of Arizona, 
Bob entered the Naval Academy with aspirations 
of flying and Service Selection might well be 
Navy Air all the way. A member of the Navy 
Rugby Club, Bob, commonly referred to as 
'Fr6re,' enjoys the party life. Our resident lan- 
guage expert is a member of the esteemed 
Black 'N' Club. The Navy wants him so bad 'Up 
With People' will just have to wait their turn. On 
weekends Fr6re can be seen driving his red Alfa 
Romeo dreaming of the good life. 


; Arriving at the 'Chesapeake Bay Institute of 
I Technology," from downtown Trenton, N.J., 
Lou readily adapted to the "Navy way" of doing 
i things Studying half-senously, academics never 
. proved to be too much of a trial as he "breezed" 
I his way through the engineering department. As 
I one of the company regulars, influencing many 
' a contest, Lou graced the intramural soccer and 
slow pitch teams and coached the company 
lightweight football team to an unparallelled sea- 
son. He leaves the Academy a designated 
Ocean Engineer with an effulgent future in the 
nuclear navy and a marked opinion on the hos- 
pitality of the French people. 


Bill came to us from sunny Florida with the 
notion "If you do you do, if you don't you don't." 
Bill, better known as Chills, is well known as a 
top sailor, so good that he not only received a 
gold 'N' but also a black one for his merits at 
sea. Not one to sit around and do nothing. Chills 
spends most of his time coordinating the room 
or with the wife. A man with a girl in his heart, VO 
on his breath, a loaded gun in his hand, a 2.0, 
and everything else down on paper looks for- 
ward to a boss time in the air. 


Gibby, one of the ten most wanted wild men of 
Bowling Green, Ohio, is the number one fan of 
the Ohio State Buckeyes. Doug has had many 
female companions in his brief but prosperous 
naval career, and plans to keep it that way for a 
while. Doug has been known to drink sizable 
quantities of all types of beer ranging from 
Labatts 50 in Toronto and Tuborg in Copenha- 
gen to Rolling Rock in Bowling Green and 
Busch in Fort Lauderdale. Doug is not without 
his quiet moments, however; like the time he

David P. Gray, 'lovingly' referred to as the 
"Gray Ghost" due to his inability to tan, hails 
from "Door-Chester," IVIass. where he occupies 
himself by "parking the car in the yard" and 
growing Irish potatoes. During his term at USNA, 
"the ghost" specialized in foreign affairs with a 
certain amount of wires, etc. added for flavor. 
Although his hair has been likened to coiled 
wires, there is no academic connection. Aspir- 
ing to be a "jet jockey" due to his dislike of 
water (and swimming), Dave should do very well 
as long as he "avoids the drinki" . . .

Pat came to the Academy from many different 
hometowns finally settling in fvlcLean, Virginia, 
long enough to graduate from Langley High. He 
chose to specialize in political science while 
avoiding as much as possible the professional 
type courses Despite a preponderance of the 
latter he made a shortlived guest appearance on 
the sup's list first class year. Spending much of 
his 4 years on crutches, Pat still managed a few 
good seasons with the Rugby Club. "Big Loot" 
plans to keep moving with Navy Air at least until 
he can fiad something to make him settle down. 
There are no regrets only aspirations to continue 
lasting friendships and a search for perennial 
happiness in life. 


Mike came to us from the town that had every- 
thing, Hot Springs, Arkansas After a shaky and 
trying Plebe year at Navy, in which his very 
existence was in doubt, Mike was finally able to 
establish himself as Navy's premier, gougeman, 
and pad maggot. A free spirit who was known to 
be a lover of wine, women and song, finally met 
that special someone youngster year and is now 
none of the above Always one with a quick wit 
and a burning sense of self-preservation, Mike 
was able to extract himself from many a hot spot 
with some of the finest excuses heard by man. 
An excellent athlete, Mike has spent 4 years 
making his narne synonymous with Rugby After 
graduation, Mike plans on making a short stop 
over at Pensacola and a "career" with Navy Air, 
giving them one of the best USNA has to offer. 


Charlie's career at the Academy was never 
what one would call dull. He was forever burning 
candles from both ends and attempting to 
escape unscathed, for the most part success- 
fully. Having survived Plebe year up on 7-3, 
"Ace " spent the next three years appeasing the 
God of 2 0, in an attempt to graduate with a des- 
ignated degree in Ocean Engineering. Some- 
how, he has survived, and takes with him a pur- 
ple MGB, gold jump wings, a scuba qualification

Hailing from Oakland. California. Stu quickly 
earned the respect and admiration of all he 
came in contact with by proving he was a willing 
worker, and the fruits of his labor became evi- 
dent as "4,0 Stu" emerged as an academic 
giant at the Academy, Easily one of the friendli- 
est and sincerest persons at the Academy. Stu is 
one of those rare fellows who utilizes his fine 
character traits to the good of everyone con- 
cerned. On the athletic field. "Stu the Stick" cut 
a formidable figure; on weekend flings Stu 
became known as the low key ladies' man; and 
around the hall Stu could always be counted on 
to cheerfully lend a he'ping hand No doubt his 
training in the Electronics field will be put to 
excellent use in Admiral Rickover's program — 
but more importantly, the Navy is gaming an offi- 
cer of the highest calibre, Stu's success is guar- 
anteed in any path he decides to pursue. 


Hailing from the opposite side of the Great 
Divide. John arrived at "Canoe U," from Lake- 
wood. Colo to become a doctor. Someone 
should have told him that Navy was for "the 
human officer and professional person," but he 
surprised us all by "slashing" his way to the 
uppermost parts of the class and into the Biosci- 
ence Major, If Adm, Rickover doesn't get him, 
he may be a doctor yet When not in his rack, 
"Doc" could be found out on the intramural field 
in anything from tennis to^the D&B, More con- 
servative than most and endowed with more 
fthan his share of common sense, "Doc" will 
benefit the Navy with whatever he does. 


Coming from Bozeman. Montana, the mild- 
mannered "Bein" of Plebe year quickly molded 
himself into a "Ragman" that Plebes always 
steered clear of his remaining 3 years at \he 
Institute, Once aboard he found himself in a tight 
race for the highest ranking midshipman from 
Montana, Never unblessed with academic tal- 
ent, Tom spent the weekends or leave with 
women whom he would never develop close 
ties. "Bein's" mood and pace always brought 
smiles to whomever visited his usually filled 
room, especially 2/c year when the "Bein 
spine" acted up. Tom's physical disability did 
not keep him from the athletic fields, however, 
where he excelled in Company intramurals. 
Picking Nuc Power for his future, Tom will make

One Monday down in Tegucigalpa 
Supe'calafragalisticexpealidoshus, Honduras, 
Central America, Ellas Barjum decided he 
wanted to attend USNA. Two weeks later he left 
the banana capital of the world for the bigger 
banana USNA. He was so cute that everyone 
wanted to nickname him and the list includes 
"The man who wears the star, Texaco, Borj, 
Barjum, Elias, Eli, Hondo, Lito, Abdul, Abdul the 
camel driver, Abdul the tent maker," and many 
more not fit for this book. Eh has been active in 
all facets of the intramural program and is con- 
stantly working out — every other tvlonday. Barj 
is an electrical engineering major and knows his 
wires both in class and in his (CC) jaguar. He is 
always going on a diet 'tomorrow' and as he 
says it he picks someone else's plate clean but 
only taking a piece or just half — twice Eli is 
concerned about his country and will leave

Track team establishing USNA records in the 
pole-vault. Sophomore year he decided to leave 
the track team and take up a new sport, speed 
walking It has been said that Jeff is the only per- 
son who could leave for class a minute late and 
arrive on time. Jeff fared well academically, usu- 
ally making either the Ment's or Supt's List. He 
would often seek help from a classmate on a 
homework problem and end up helping the 
helper instead. Although Jeff would like to fly, 
his eyes are on the Nuclear Power Program 
where he should do well. 



Bruce, or "Head" as he was affectionatel; 
known, came to USNA from the surfs of South- 
ern California He is the type that can never 
outdone, whether it be telling stories or an 
wrestling in the bars of Hong Kong. The onl'_ 
problem with listening to his stories is that af 
times he would get carried away and you had to _ 
have your dictionary on hand to translate. One ^ 
of the famed "Hong Kong Six," Bruce could 
always be counted on to party, even if it meant 
bringing his $6,000 (at least) stereo system witf"

and strong self confidence should take him far 
with the corps.

Ron jumped right out of Jersey to become 
one ot the world's most celebrated chemists and 
sure to be Nobel Prize winner His second year 
he squeezed out of chemistry into a more 
demanding major — History Maybe he got his 
name "Squirrel" by jumping from major to major 
or something similar but only half of Annapolis 
knows for sure. Answering to the name Case 
and several other off color names, Ron would 
always flash a smile and the same line "Hey, 
how are ya!'" The smile always seemed to stick 
especially Friday nights after his pilgrimage to 
the O Club happy hour and the long weaving 
crawl back. Having analyzed the real value of 
USNA training, Ron has decided to spend his 
5th year trying to graduate With Ron's ambition 
and true concern for people, the Navy will surely 
benefit from his career. I rank him 1 of 0. 


Steve, or just plain Curlee, drove his Cutlass 
out of the pits of the Stanley, NC main street and 
into the "500" of Navy Tech. Curls, a Mechani-

Tom "Cookie" Gillcrist is a Navy junior in the 
finest fashion. Born in Chincoteaque, '\/irginia, 
chicken capital of the world, Tom claims 1 2 pre- 
vious residences. That along with Tom's fine 
academic background of 3 years in kindergarten 
gave him the necessary credentials to enroll in 
Annapolis Tech. Cookie was famous for several 
things, his intense desire to wrestle anyone who 
hung his frog, possessing more chow but eating 
less of it than anyone else in the company, and 
his 0-736 won-loss record with his rack. Tom will 
be flying in a back seat or cruising in a front seat 
after graduation. Whatever his decision, it's 
bound to be the wrong one. 


Steve came from Mobile, Alabama claiming to 
be a Southern Gentleman at heart Though he 
thought he was the "young stud" that could 
catch all the young ladies, the majority of times 
he was dependent on his roommate for dates. 
He spent tfie last 4 years building up his supers- 
tar image His deeds range from writing his own 
press release for a hometown paper and having 
his roommate sign it, to collecting 1975 numer- 
als and N stars to cover the holes in his bath 
robe. Steve is a firm believer in the 30 hour study 
per week concept. Fifteen he spends trying to 
impress others about his major and the other fif- 
teen at picking other people's faults. His near 
future has him at flight school in Pensacola. 
Whatever after, Steve will surely be a credit to 
the Navy. 



Kurt, or "Huffer" as he was known, came to 
the academy from the deserts of New Mexico, 
spinning his rifle all the way. A very likable per-

He was an official member of the "Hong Kong 
Six" and active participator in many other mem- 
orable experiences Kurt was never one to turn 
dov;n a good time with either "the boys" or 
members of the opposite sex Then one June

attitude will take him far in the supply corps. 


Truly the "Space Cowboy" of 34, Tom i 
devoted Plebe year to running out Captain Kirk.

Steve was Hawley, Pa's contribution to the ■ 
"nation's finest" An active competitor on Com- i 
pany and Battalion sports teams, Steve's deter- 
mination served as inspiration in many victories. 
"Moms" also had the cumbersome responsibil- 
ity of taking care of and cleaning up after the TT 
(Thirsty Travellers) Club activities Steves tre- 
mendous sense of companionship made him a 
household name with all the lovelies on the east ■

Fergie flew in from Taiwan to join the Navy 
Blue and Gold. With his receding hairline, the 
bald eagle quickly began his pursuit of Navy 
soccer, Oceanography, and surface line. Plebe 
year liberty got Fergie out the gate; romance 
cornered him but Navy always won until Heidi 
appeared second class year. With his belief in 
Navy tradition, he distinguished himself among 
his classmates for his pursuit of professionalism. 
Always let it be remembered that Fergie was a 
rugger — his hard charging and professional-

Tom came to join us all here at the Salty 
Severn River Sea School from the rolling hills of 
Scotia, New York. Always trying to bag it, he 
never quite managed to succeed, thereby pro- 
viding the axiom "that Bagging it is a lost art!" 
He started by validating just about every course 
you can validate in plebe summer, plus a couple 
more, such as plebe summer''' In fact, he did so 
well in academics the first 3 years, they decided 
to let him validate first class year with a Trident 
Scholar. Since academics came so easily to 
him. Tom could usually be found dreaming of 
one of his many loves rather than studying. 
Always wanting to be a ladies' man. he was defi- 
nitely a firm follower of the opposite sex Lately 
though, Tom has found a new love, a little green 
Capri. With it, Tom is one of the few Mids that 
can truthfully say he drives more miles than we

likes to get hold of something hot and put it

he showered and changed to head out for his 
one true love, an afternoon of flying He's defi-

This blond haired. 6'5" giant by the name of 
Chuck came striding into the gates of the Acad- 
emy from the vast metropolis of Baltimore, With 
home and his girl so close the past 4 years have 
been nothing but fun until it was time to go back 
to school and studies. Always a good athlete, 
Chuck's favorite sport was basketball, only you 
had to watch out because he might step on you 
with his size 13's. Aspiring to get his feet off the 
ground. Chuck is looking for the fastest mode of 
transportation next to his Z, a jet. So the Navy 
will be getting one of its best pilots as soon as 
Chuck hits the fleet 


Frank, commonly known to us as Francis or 
Big Frank, came to our hallowed halls from the 
large metropolis of Newark, Delaware A gradu- 
ate of Salisianum High School, then a graduate 
of NAPS, Frank is one of the most respected 
individuals among his peers. He is always seen 
with a good disposition and a jovial attitude, yet 
he's not afraid to stand up for what he believes. 
Though not recruited for the Track team, Frank 
was State high school champion in the javelin 
event, only to be plagued with injuries when he 
came here Academics not being one of his 
stronger assets, he still has an uncanny ability to 
get the gouge and pass it along Among his 
ECA's is a certain female whose enthusiasm and 
encouragement have pulled him through USNA. 
Not a weekend has gone by since youngster 
year, that he and Janie have not been together. 
Looking forward to a future in Navy Air, he will 
definitely be an asset to the program wherever 
he goes. Whether Frank is career oriented or 
not, it will undoubtedly be one filled with suc- 
cess We all have confidence in him. Good luck

Monkey Bill is a product of the Blue Grass 
State A real ladies' man (and a former member

normal share of athletic success in high school, 
his interests have changed some and varied 
continuously, including high academic achieve- 
ment after a slow start. Over the years, he has 
won the respect of all, but his claim to fame must 
be his method of counting the days until the next 
leave period (i,e,, on August 20th of plebe sum- 
mer, his calculations showed there to be only 38 
days until Christmas, by omitting Saturdays, 
Sundays, Holidays, light academic days, early 
routines, clear skies, and full moons,) He is also 
a strong advocate of waiting at least ten years 
after graduation before considering marriage 
After graduation and his June wedding(!), 
he will enter the Navy as a surface line officer. 
Whenever and wherever he goes from there, 
experience has taught us that Rep will gam the

Brian will undoubtedly go down in the annals 
of 75 as the man whose hobby it was to salvage 
the sinking academic careers of his classmates. 
Never one to refuse aid to an aspiring engineer, 
Balks would use the steady stream of visitors to 
his room during study hour as an opportunity to 
prepare for his own exams. After working every- 
one else's problems, he would have neither the 
inclination nor the need to study much more 
himself With characteristic canny and fore- 
thought, Balks was able to escape the clutches 
of the Nuclear Power representative before serv- 
ice selection, by telling him that Nuc Power 
would not give him ample opportunity to use his 
major; after all, he is an Electrical Engineer' 
Those who are worrying about the country's 
future energy problems are wasting their time 
All they have to do is catch Brian sometime 
when he is not flying Navy planes, and ask him 
for a little advice and Extra Instruction. 


For reasons that he is still not certain existed, 
Jim left beautiful Hawaii to become one of the 
"Cream of the Crop." Never inclined towards 
marching, Jim early off made golf his sport, 
which served him well for four years. Quite a 
slash, he did not hesitate to sacrifice his time in 
the pursuit of academics, even if it meant an 
afternoon in the rack to rest up for a hard night's 
studying. Native East Coast chicks just never 
really appealed to Big Jim, so he'd always have 
a hometown honey or two on his line, even if it 
meant the long waits till Christmas or summers.

When all you make 

are helicopters, one of the 

things you emphasize 

is Research 

and Development. 

Better products come from those prepared 
to meet customers' future needs. 

At Bell. Research and Development has 
built the technology base to answer this requirement. 

Adapting to changing needs has led to 

many advancements in Bell helicopters. 

Like elastomeric bearing hubs, that need no 

lubrication— ever. Gear boxes that won't 

seize, even after loss of oil. A nodalized 

suspension system that eliminates fuselage 

vibration. Application of advanced 

materials. Highly effective integrated 

weapon systems. Plus techniques in manufacturing 

and cost-control that have become standards 

for the helicopter industry. 

Bell's R&D today, for tomorrow. 

the world over

"I saw eternity the other night 

Like a great ring of pure and endless 


All calm, as it was bright; 

And round beneath it, time in hours, 

days, years. , ." 

Henry Vaughn (1622-1695) 


Yxi cant expect 

great music unless you have 

great equipment. 


In every area of music, a great 
performance is a rare and beautiful 
event. In opera, brilliance is achieved 
when a great score, great vocalists 
and a great orchestra are brought 
together. In jazz, greatness is the 
improvisational genius of musicians 
performing together. 

In your home, greatness means 
Pioneer. High fidelity equipment that 
delivers truly superior performance. 
Performance that can only be 

achieved when excellence is your 
standard and innovation is your 
way of life. 

For truly great performance, 
choose your music system from the 
complete line of Pioneer audio 
components. Great music is a rare 
and beautiful event — with great 
equipment from Pioneer.

Built by Hughes: 

Computers, displays, 

missiles, radars, 

communications satellites, 

and 551 other products 

of advanced technology. 


Seven generations of commu- 
nications satellites have been built 
by Hughes since 1 963. hlughes is 
now building the Western Union 
WESTARand Comsat-General/ 
AT&T satellites for U.S. domestic 
commercial systems. 

The Navy's long-range Phoenix 

and AWG-9 weapon control 
system give its new F- 1 4 Tomcat 
fighter the capability to engage up 
to six attacking aircraft or cruise 
missiles simultaneously. 

NATO's NADGE air defense sys- 
tem, stretching across a 3,000-mile 
arc from Norway to Turkey, 
protects Western Europe from air 
attack. NADGE uses Hughes- 
developed software and Hughes- 

built computers, operoting in a 
multiprocessing mode, in its 37 
"nerve centers." 

Wire-guided TOW missile is the 

Army's primary anti-tank weapon 
at battalion level. Hughes is 
building launching systems and 
gyro-stabilized sights for the 
HueyCobra helicopter. 


The Navy's NTDS (Naval Tactical 
Data System) uses a computer to 
process and evaluate radar and 
sonar data on enemy threats 
within a ship's combatarea, then 
gives the commander an instanta- 
neous battle-situation picture on its 
Hughes-built display console and 
helps him assign and control the 
proper defensive weapons — inter- 

ceptors, missiles, torpedoes, 
or guns. 


Attack radar system for the Air 

Force's F-1 5 Eagle automatically 
displays on the cockpit windscreen 
the instant information the pilot 
needs for successful air-to-air 

NASA's advanced OSO-I (Orbit

The soapbox is a lonely place 

For a long time now, we've been rais- 
ing our voice in ads like this one. On a 
variety of issues. Including the need for a 
sensible U.S. energy policy. Noting that 
without adequate return on investment, 
exploration for new sources of oil and gas 
will fall off. Making the U.S. more and more 
dependent on costly foreign supplies. 

Sometimes, we wonder if we are talk- 
ing to ourselves. Congress certainly wasn't 
listening when it singled out the oil indus- 
try for heavy new taxation. In addition, 
there are now some 500 oil-related bills 
before Congress, many of which would im- 
pose new regulation on the industry. Some 
Congressmen have even proposed a sub- 
sidized federal petroleum corporation to 
"compete" with private oil companies. 

We don't think the companies should 
be expected to take such assaults lying 
down. So we speak out. The trouble is, not 
enough other businesses follow suit— and 
it gets pretty lonely on the soapbox. 

We think there's plenty for other com- 
panies to worry about. If our Congressmen 

can blithely take away the depletion allow- 
ance from some oil companies, if they can 
tinker with the foreign tax credit to "pun- 
ish" us— and if they do this even at the risk 
of the nation's future energy security and 
perhaps the whole economy— what makes 
anyone think they'll stop with oil? 

What makes any industry think it's 

We wish there were more like the 
Chase Bank, which has been warning that 
government disincentives to investment 
are precipitating a critical shortage of cap- 
ital. The U.S., says Chase, will need $4.1 
trillion in the next ten years, just to rebuild 
aging industrial capacity. 

And if it doesn't happen, there won't 
be enough jobs. Which suggests other 
voices should come forth. Not just busi- 
ness, but labor groups. Women. Minorities. 
Every American who has a stake in the 
economy. And who doesn't? 

If enough voices are raised. Congress 
will have to listen. And it won't be so lonely 
out there on the soapbox.

Salutation to all to whom it may concern: 

With no small sigh of relief, I finish this, the last page of the 1975 Lucky Bag. Thus ends my contributic 
to this collection of memories. The rest is in the hands of the publisher. The evaluation is up to you, ft 

The Lucky Bag was first published in 1894 as a collection of literary masterpieces coughed up by \[ 
Brigade. Now, with the advent of photography and expeditiousness, it has evolved into a pictorial memo 
collection with very little copy. You, the members of the Navy Boat School on the Severn, are the star 
You, Class of 1 975, are in the limelight. Despite all your trials and tribulations, for one brief instant, you a 
on the top of the totem pole. And all Mids know it flows downhill. 

Many people have had a hand in getting this.memory collection and history published. The foundation 
these people was, of course, the 1 975 Lucky Bag stali . Working hard, and sometimes hardly working, th( 
were the ones that handled the mechanics of putting out the Bag. 

Thanks to Victor O'Neill Studios of New York for photography of the Senior portraits and canned unde, 
class group pictures. Coy Harris, the local representative, provided invaluable assistance. j 

Thanks to Taylor Publishing Company of Dallas, Texas for its services. Special thanks to Pat Mahone 
the local representative, for his many hours of time devoted to helping the staff with the many problen 
and technical details of publishing a yearbook. And a hot time in the old town of Dallas. 

Thanks to Harry K. Leventen Advertising Agency of Santa Monica, California for rounding up the marl 
big-time advertisers found in the Bag. 

Thanks to the USNA Photo Lab in Nimitz Library for providing negatives for many pictures. Speci 
thanks to the secretary Boni Missimer who patiently looked up thousands (sure seemed like it) of negativt 
for our use. Thanks also to Mr. Jack Moore and the rest of the photographers who engineered mar 
needed photos. 

Thanks to the Public Affairs Office for pictures and help with the chain-of-command, particularly thanf 
to secretary Jan Steward. 

Of course, with the time needed to work on the Bag, thanks to all the families, friends, and girlfriends th. 
gave up weekend fun to allow the staff members to get their work done. 

And thanks to the Brigade of Midshipmen for just being themselves and having their pictures taken. 

All is said and done now. Criticisms will come, for sure. Names spelled incorrectly, people omitted. F( 
that, I offer my apologies. Although small in number, 4000 people are hard to keep track of. 

Well, 75, we know you are out there. For better or worse. And your one instant to be at the top of th 
heap has passed away. The rest is up to you. May this book allow you future brief instants to again escai; 
to the top. i
